With Reflections Upon the Present Political and Probable Future Relations of Texas, Mexico, and the United States. By Gen. Thomas J. Green. Illustrated by drawings taken from life by Charles M'Laughlin, a Fellow-Prisoner. (New York: Harper & Brothers, 1845). First edition. Octavo, 8.5" x 5.5". xiv, [15-17] 18-487 pages. Illustrated with eleven plates, including two plans (one of them folding), and with one of the plates used as a frontispiece. Handsomely bound in modern half brown morocco over marbled paper boards, spine in six compartments with five raised bands and lettered and tooled in gilt. Sprinkled edges. Green's first-hand account of the expedition against Mier, and the ensuing tragedy. Green and others led a retaliatory attack against Mier on the Rio Grande in 1842 and after failing were taken prisoner. The author describes the expedition, his imprisonment and eventual escape. Occasional light foxing and soiling, especially to the tissue guards and plates. A few small spots of soiling to the edges, else a very good copy. From the collection of Darrel Brown.

    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.
