        Ledger for a New York Merchant, 1819 - 1828

      Hardcover. Very good. An un-named merchant, with a full clientele of individuals, with the usual entries for purchases of sugar, tea, rum, shrub, tobacco, bitters, flour, and nautical supplies for boats including sails and tack. Most interesting are the multiple entries for Daggett & Kensett. Our merchant appears to act as a bank & supplier for them, and supply ships in the US Navy. Payment of cash & occasionally supplies appear on the left side of the ledger, with long lists of US Navy ships & Captains on the right side of the ledger, with payments. Amongst the provisions supplied to Daggett & Kensett are Cash for Tin $53.63 1822, and 1823 Sept. 13, 12 barrels vinegar. They had developed a process for canning seafood (salmon, oysters and lobsters), in 1819, and in 1825, Ezra Daggett and Thomas Kensett of New York City were granted the first U.S. patent for food storage in cans. An April 3rd 1823 entry reads "Apl 3rd 1823 to Nov. 30th 1824 provisions sold US Navy received by US Navy received by Dept .... $4350.30." The merchant had a good business, with deposits at the Franklin Bank, Bank of America & Bank of the United States, at times over $12,000. Other clients included the Brig Comet, Alfred Churchill, Sloop Eagle, Alexander M. Hamilton, Capt. Wm.

        Autograph letter signed to Andr?elly

      Geneva, 1822. No Dust Jacket. Boissier, Henri (1762-1845). Autograph letter signed to Andr?elly (1802-51). Geneva, 21 March 1822. 2pp. plus integral address leaf. 202 x 155 mm. Docketed. From Professor Henri Boissier, founder of Geneva's natural history museum, to the young Swiss businessman Andr?elly, acting as the museum's purchasing agent in England, regarding the purchase of insect specimens for the museum. Boissier informs Melly that the museum's collections have recently been augmented "par un don de col?teres de M. le Dr. Peschier o? y a de bonnes choses, & par un achast de quelques bons papillons & insectes exotiques que m'a procur?. Pr?st" [by a gift of coleoptera from Dr. Peschier containing some good things, and by a purchase of several good butterflies and foreign insects from M. Pr?st].This last purchase "a un peu r?it la somme que la cours avait mit ?a disposition. Je ne peut donc vous faire payer pour le moment qu'un bon de f. 400 que je vous prie d'employer, comme vous le jugerai convenable, surtout en orthopt?s, h?pt?s & n?opt?s dont nous sommes tr?mal fournis" [has reduced somewhat the amount made available to me from the course. At this moment I can only pay you the sum of 400 francs which I urge you to use, as you see fit, primarily for orthoptera, hemiptera and neuroptera, which we greatly lack]. Boissier lists several species of each that he wishes to acquire, including "criquets & sauter[elles] exotiq[ues]" [foreign crickets and grasshoppers] and "termites ou fourmis blanches" [termites or white ants]. He instructs Melly to expedite the shipment of insects to him so that he will have enough time to unpack them and put them in cases. "Dr. Peschier" may refer to Geneva native Charles Gaspard Peschier (1782-1853), a pioneer of homeopathic medicine in French-speaking countries. M. Pr?st, another Genevan, was a founder of the firm of Pr?st and Morris in London. Boissier's correspondent, Andr?elly, ended up settling in England in 1822 (the year that this letter was written), and becoming a prominent businessman in northern England. He acted as agent to the Viceroy of India and then to the Egyptian Government, dying of fever while on a tour of the Nile in 1851.
