Still, a very good copy, with generally good color.
    "The anatomical relationships of the organs, their range of motion, and especially the effects of respiration and cardiac pulsation are described in a unique manner... a final commentary on the structure, movements, and sounds of the heart reveals an accuracy far beyond anything that had yet been published in anatomical works" (Eimas). Garrison-Morton 422. Eimas 1814.
    From the Collection of Dr. Gerald Sugarman

    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.
