Over 700 lots of historically important material from the 18th through 20th centuries, covering the exploration, settlement, civilization, and cultural transformations of the Americas and the world at large, and also the wars and battles that are ever present. The offering contains books, photographs, maps, documents, letters, manuscripts, items signed by United States Presidents, ephemera, and more. Included is a large collection of printed and manuscript items relating to the Mexican-American War of the late 1840’s, in which the United States wrested large swathes of territory from Mexico, what is now the Southwest.
PBA Dynamic Bidding
When you place an absentee bid online, PBA's Dynamic Bidding will calculate your absentee bid against competing absentee bids and determine the current high bid amount. So, for example, if you place an absentee bid of $200 on an item with a minimum bid of $100, you will be notified that you are the high bidder and the bid is at $100. If a second bidder then places a bid of $150, your bid will be incremented up to $160. The under bidder will also be notified by email that their bid was outbid with a link to the item to enter a higher bid if desired. The current high bid will be the starting bid when the lot comes up in the live auction itself. In addition to providing full transparency, Dynamic Bidding will allow you to make more informed decisions.
