    Physicist and reformer Alexander Dallas Bache (1806-1867) was the great-grandson of Benjamin Franklin. A West Point graduate and veteran of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, he was appointed Superintendent of the United States Coast Survey, one of the nation's leading scientific institutions, in 1843. A master of delegating authority, Bache managed to map the entire coast, including these detailed sections depicting the Texas seaboard.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
