Full Title Map of the Beideman Tract lots & blocks according to official map of the Western Addition. Drawn from actual survey by M. Hoadley. ... Lith. Britton & Co. To be sold at public auction, on Saturday, Oct. 6th, 1860 at 12 o'clock M. at Platts Music Hall. By H.A. Cobb and R.H. Sinton, real estate auctrs. (with) Map of the city of San Francisco. Published by Britton & Co., Lithographers, Montgomery St. cor. of Comml. sts., San Francisco.
Note Scarce and early land sale map with a very early issue of Britton & Co.'s "Map of the City of San Francisco" and below it on the same sheet a larger "Map of the Beideman Tract..." Beideman owned several large parcels of land in the emerging areas of the city and this tract was one of the earliest to be sold in the newly annexed Western Addition. The Britton & Co. Map of San Francisco is the earliest issue that we have seen, followed by several issues in 1863 to 1867 by Gensoul and the San Francisco Municipal Reports and the San Francisco Directory (see our copies under Gensoul). The Norris catalog lists an 1859 Map of Hayes Tract also by M. Hoadley with lots to be sold at auction by H.A. Cobb, but the San Francisco map is not printed above the Hayes Tract map. One of the earliest San Francisco land sales maps. Covers area bounded by Laguna, Bush, Larkin and McAllister streets. Casastral map.
