    A. Map of Missouri, by Samuel Augustus Mitchell, dated 1847 (13.7 x 15.9"). This decorative map of the state shows early settlement along the Missouri River with the counties in the north and south very sparsely settled. Roads are well detailed throughout the state. The county configuration is accurate up to 1845 as Putnam has not yet split into Dodge. Copyright entered by H. N. Burroughs in 1847. Condition: Original color with light soiling, toning along the edges of the sheet, and numerous short edge tears that have been archivally repaired, some of which enter into the border. (B+)

B. Missouri, by J.H. Colton & Co., dated 1855 (15.9 x 12.8"). This detailed map of Missouri features good detail of political and county lines, roads, canals, rivers, and railroads. It shows the Pacific Railroad on a stretch from Jefferson City to St. Louis along with numerous other railroads. An inset at top left centers on St. Louis. The boot is included on the map, rather than as an inset. A part of the Kansas Territory appears as Kanzas with plenty of Indian tribes named. Condition: There are edge tears and light damp stains in the blank margins. (A)

C. St. Louis, by Samuel Augustus Mitchell Jr., dated 1867 (11.1 x 14.0"). This striking plan of St. Louis depicts the city's wards and streets in good detail. The Mississippi River is visible on the east, and the Pacific Railroad enters the city from the west. Condition: There are a couple unobtrusive spots and small chips and toning in the blank margins. (A)

Condition Description: See description above.

Bid Increments Minimum bid is $1.00.
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.
