    Colonial America: 1754 Hand-Colored Map. 12" x 9.25" engraved map on laid paper, titled: "A Map of the British American Plantations, extending from Boston in New England to Georgia including all the back Settlements in the respective Provinces, as far as the Mississipi [sic]." Published by Emanuel Bowen of London and dated July 1754. The boundaries of the provinces bear little resemblance to the states as we now know them. The land of the different Native American tribes are noted (Chikasas, Upper Creeks, Cohokias, Miyamis, Twigtwis and "Iroquois Six Nations Sub: of Great Britain". Forts, settlements and stockades are also pinpointed and identified. Charming vignette of two Native Americans, a wild animal and the head of an unfortunate settler pierced by an arrow (guess he was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time!). Excellent condition. Folds and binding strip along the left side indicate it was originally bound in a book or periodical.

    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.
