    Large and extremely detailed chart by J.H. Clark, U.S. Commissioner, that was drawn by J.E. Weyss, circa 1860. The map features the survey lines between Texas and New Mexico with good topographical detail. Information includes forts, Raton Pass, the Santa Fe and Albuquerque trails, numerous explorers' routes, Indian trails, and more. The map is an interesting historical curiosity because it was not published when the survey was finished due to the outbreak of the Civil War. In 1902 the map was belatedly included in a Geological Survey Bulletin by Marcus Baker. Printed by the Norris Peters Co., Photo-Litho. The map is still bound into the 50-page report with paper wrappers.

Condition Description: Issued folding with faint toning and several splits at fold intersections. There is a chip in the right blank margin that just passes the neatline and a small fold separation at bottom that has been repaired on verso with archival tape. Report is very good with light toning and chips along the fore-edge of a few pages.

Ref: Wheat (TMW) #1022.

Bid Increments Minimum bid is $75.00.
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.
