    Jacques Lowe: A Folio of 30 Outstanding Examples of the Photographer's Best Work. This smaller folio was limited to an edition of 60, each signed and numbered on the mount by the photographer. Each photo print is 7.5" x 11", 11" x 14" including the mounts, and is protected by a loose cover of heavy mylar. The edition is divided into three sections, each housed in its own box, and the three boxes then fit into a large custom slipcase. The title of each section is embossed in silver on the box. No expense was spared in producing these protective cases, which are very substantial, with all surfaces including the interiors covered in linen. The smaller folio consists of three sections:
    1) "The Early Work" (various artistic images of life in Haiti, France, and Scotland, taken in 1953-54).
    2) "Jazz Legends," including Count Basie, Ella Fitzgerald, Quincy Jones, Frank Sinatra, Charlie Mingus, Elvin Jones, Archie Shepp, Sammy Davis, Jr., Chaka Khan and Artie Shaw (taken at various times and locations, 1958-1996).
    3) "The Kennedy Years 1953-1958," including great subjects such as "Smoke-Filled Room," "Campaigning (JFK during the West Virginia Primary)," "Do not Ask..." (the Inauguration), "First Day in Office" (Oval Office), "Jackie Campaigning," "JFK & Caroline" (at Hyannis Port), "Night Prayers" (at Hickory H
    This is a wonderful and diverse assemblage of Lowe's best work in a magnificent format. Surely this and the following lot represent the pinnacle for the serious collector of Jacques Lowe photography.

    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.
