    George B. McClellan: Manual of Bayonet Exercise (Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott, 1862) with Great Period ID to "Patrick Breen, Sergt. Co. C, 2nd US Infty, 2nd Brigade, 2nd Division, 5th Army Corps, Army of the Potomac." The 2nd US Infantry was engaged from 1st Bull Run to Peeble's Farm in Oct. of 1864, including The Seven days, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, The Wilderness and Spotsylvania, losing 96 men killed and mortally wounded. The book is in excellent tight crisp complete condition, just some minor foxing on the plates. This same inscription is on the back of three of the plates with the addition of the place and date where it was written, "Falmouth, Va. May 4th 1863, Alexandria, Va. Sept. 20th 1863, Catlett's Station April 24th 1864". The book carries additional ID to "Jas. F. O'Neil, Capt. 10(1) st N. Y. S. V., Syracuse, N. Y." Graphically among the nicest period IDs we've seen.

    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.
