    This lot contains four maps of Detroit from the American State Papers of 1860. The maps were not published with the original government report in 1830, and are not listed in Claussen & Friis. All were printed by Bowen & Co.ís Lith., Philadelphia. The maps include:

A. Plan of Detroit by John Mullett 1830 (17.5 x 13.8"). The detailed plan of the city includes a list to 15 important buildings and institutions keyed to the plan.

B. Plat of The City of Detroit as Laid Out by The Govr. and Judges (18.5 x 11.4"). Similar in size and style to Mullett's map. Prepared by John Farmer January 8, 1831 from Wayne County Michigan Territory.

C. Plan Of Detroit (9.8 x 8.2"). Good detail of the city from the Grand Circle to the Detroit River.

D. The Points Where Private Claims Conflict with the Plan of The City are Indicated by Dotted Lines (6.5 x 10.8"). The plan delineates individual plots with the owner's name. Concerned with property between Larned Street and Jefferson Avenue, and between Congress Street and Woodward Avenue.

To submit your bid, enter your maximum bid below and then click the Review Bid button.

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 $11.00 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!

  • 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.
