    A. M. Gentry. Map of Texas Showing the Line of the Texas and New Orleans Railroad and Its Connections in the U.S. and Adjacent Territories. By A. M. Gentry. 1860. 31.25" x 22". This rare map of Texas and surrounding states and territories was printed shortly before Texas seceded from the Union in February 1861, making it one of the last maps used before printers hastened to print new maps heralding the Confederate States of America. This important map shows railroad "actually built," "partially finished," "under contract," and "chartered, but not under contract." The large map covers Arkansas, Louisiana, Indian Territory, as well as parts of Mississippi, Tennessee, Missouri, Kansas, New Mexico, Arizona, and seven Mexican states. With wide borders and an image of a steam engine. Two minor holes, one in southwest Arkansas and the other in the Mexican state Chihuahua. Separation along one fold. Small amounts of tape along edges on verso. Slightly wrinkled. Near fine. Ex Ben E. Pingenot.

    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.
