First edition. 12mo. xii, 2-241pp, with 6-page publisher's catalog. Original brown cloth with decoration stamped in blind and titles in gilt on the spine. Moderate wear to boards, especially at the edges and spine ends, with uniform scuffing. One small area of loss on the spine not affecting titles. Front hinge cracked. Scattered foxing throughout with a bit of dampstaining on the preliminary pages. Page 115/116 with top third missing. Taken on balance, a very good copy of a rare book.

    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.
