Description: (NEW YORK CITY.) Map of Valuable Lots to be Sold at Auction by Cole & Chilton on Thursday 11th April 1850 at 12 o''clock at the Merchant''s Exchange. Exceptionally scarce separately issued broadside real estate auction map, showing the area for sale of the present day United Nations Headquarters. 23 1/2x31 1/4 inches; folded at an early time, flattened with small areas of loss at some fold intersections reinforced with archival tissue, light toning, some edge wear, pencil annotations on recto, pencil and ink annotations on verso. [New York:] Miller''s Lithography, 1850

Notes: The firm of Cole & Chilton were one of the most successful New York City real estate auctioneers during this formative period in the city''s history. The ephemeral nature of broadside advertisement maps such as this one has rendered them quite rare; a few examples of the firm''s maps are preserved at the Museum of the City of New York, and the Library of Congress.
