    Winston Churchill Signed The Second World War "To- Frederick: from Winston Churchill" to his chauffeur on the title page of Volume II. This elegant two-volume set was abridged by LIFE magazine's editors from Churchill's six-volume magnum opus of the same name, which had been excerpted in LIFE between the years 1948 and 1953. Each coffee-table book in the pair is beautifully gold-embossed on the front cover and spine, with colorful interior illustrations, detailed maps, and black-and-white photos. Published in 1959, the books measure 10.5" x 14", grade in very fine condition, and come with the original black slipcase that has dutifully protected them for nearly a half-century.

    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.
