    Artillery Manual Signed By Future Union Major General Samuel P. Heintzelman. Instruction For Field Artillery, by a Board of Artillery Officers (Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott & Co., 1860), 348 pp. with 88 plates, brown cloth, 8vo (6.5" x 8"). Signed "S. P. Heintzelman Major U.S. Army Camp Verde Texas Sept. 19. 1860" on front free end paper and "S. P. Heintzelman Major U.S. Army" on title page. Bold signatures. Some wear to cover's extremities, light internal foxing. Overall very good condition. In and of itself a great pre-war tutorial, this book is considerably enhanced by its association with Heintzelman and the post at Camp Verde. Samuel Heintzelman (1805 - 1880) graduated from West Point in 1826. A veteran of the Mexican and Seminole Wars, he rose to command a corps during the early stages of the Civil War. The Confederate victory at Second Manassas effectively retired Heintzelman, although he stayed with the Army for the rest of the war. His posting at Camp Verde coincided with the Army's famous camel experiments at that location.

    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.
