    More Information: Dodd (fl 1727-1740). This collection of verses was first published in 1727. We don't have any biographical information about the author but In a broadside c1740 called  "The old trooper's humble petition. To the most noble John Duke of Montagu, &c." Dodd asks for a place as a Master Gunner. Montagu was Master General of the Ordnance, 1740-41, 1742-49. However, all Dodd's other verse was published between 1727-30. His poems have him marching to Dundee Scotland in 1716, fighting at sea in 1719, and stationed in Dublin in 1717. We presume therefore he was a poet soldier whose verse was self-published. All editions of his work are rare.  ESTC t67022 (3 copies only: 2 in US). Foxon D359.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
