    This attractive and detailed map is based on Jefferys' important map of Canada in 1760. It covers from Hudson Bay, through the Great Lakes, to Philadelphia and west to include Lake Winnipeg. There is an interesting array of speculative cartography in the lakes and rivers. While there is a realistic interpretation of Lake Winnipeg, it connects via the Rivier Bourbon to Hudson Bay, and also gives rise to the Mississippi River. The St. Charles River, which connects with the Mississippi, flows off the map to the west with a notation in Dutch, "the length of which is unknown, this is the route the Indians follow coming from the West." Several Hudson Bay Company forts and numerous Indian villages are located. An inset illustrates the Gulf of St. Lawrence.

Condition Description: Full original color on watermarked paper with faint damp stains confined to the right and left blank margins and a separation along the plate mark in the left blank margin.

Our Proxy bidding makes it safe to submit your maximum bid - see "Proxy Bidding" below. You will need to enter your User Name and Password in the next step, unless you have Signed In. You will also have the opportunity in the next step to verify your bid amount before submitting it.

Bid Increments Minimum bid is $150.00 but you may bid any greater amount.
Enter your maximum bid - the Proxy Bidding System will competitively enter your bid. Please note that Proxy bids only work once the reserve value has been met. Any bids placed below (or equal to) the reserve will be entered at face value.

Do not use a comma (,) or a decimal point (.). Use whole numbers only!


Notes:
  • Bids must be entered in bidding increments. Bids that do not correspond to bidding increments will be reduced to the next lower increment.
  • The Buyer's premium of 15% will be added to all winning bids.
Our "Proxy Bidding" service takes the worry out of bidding - here's how it works:

• When you bid, you enter the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the item. Your maximum bid is kept secret from other bidders and the consignor.
• Our system compares your bid to bids by other bidders. The system automatically bids on your behalf, using only as much of your bid as is necessary to maintain your high bid position, or to meet the reserve price. You don't have to closely monitor the auction as it unfolds.
• If another bidder has a higher maximum bid, you will be out bid. At the auction close if you have the highest bid you win the item. You can end up paying less than your maximum bid depending on what other bidders have bid.
• You can raise your maximum bid at anytime. And you will never bid against yourself, just everyone else!

Your bid is a contract - Only place a bid if you're serious about buying the item; if you're the winning bidder, you have entered into a legally binding contract to purchase the item from Old World Auctions.
