     A. Johnson's Washington and Oregon, by Johnson & Browning, circa 1861. A handsome and colorful map of the Pacific Northwest with Washington Territory wrapping around Oregon and extending south to Utah and east to Nebraska Territory. County development is mostly limited to the coastal areas. At the time of publication, Oregon was a state, but the county configuration here is only current up to 1856, when it was still a territory. Josephine County has formed out of Jackson, but their positions are reversed. Very little information is displayed in the area of today's Idaho except for Fort Hall, the nearby Cantonment Loring, and an early reference to Soda Springs as "Beer or Soda Springs." The map locates numerous forts including Boise, Benton, Owen, Colville, and Hall. The important landmarks of Three Buttes and the Three Tetons are noted in the lower portion of Washington Territory. Condition: There are a few spots of foxing and a light crease in the bottom left corner of the sheet.

B. Johnson's Washington Oregon and Idaho, by Johnson & Ward, circa 1864. A nice map of the northwest, with an enlarged Idaho Territory incorporating present-day western Montana. Gold discoveries in Clearwater Country, Idaho, in September 1860 led to an influx of thousand of miners into the region. Idaho was organized as a territory in July 1863 and Montana was separated as a territory in May 1864, thus this map was issued for only a short period of time. The areas of the Solomon River and the Nez Perce mines are shown as are other mining centers. Fort Boise is shown on the Oregon & Idaho border. Condition: There are light damp stains in the blank margins and along the left border.

Condition Description: See description above.

Bid Increments Minimum bid is $100.00.
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!

  • 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.
