        New York

      H. S. Tanner, Philadelphia 1825 - Engraved with full, period colour. Mild off-set throughout. Repaired 6" split at bottom of center fold. A fine example of Tanner's updated map of New York Henry Tanner's A New American Atlas , was the most distinguished atlas published in America during the nineteenth century. The maps were carefully constructed from the best and most recent surveys. They were finely engraved on a large-scale, printed on high quality paper, and carefully hand coloured. Because of the great expense involved in the production and publication, the atlas was published in five parts between 1819 and 1823. It was an ambitious project but one clearly called for as the country rapidly expanded. Western New York was among the first "western" regions of the United States on which people speculated. It was generally supposed to be better for agriculture than in fact it was; many farms were abandoned by their owners. One of the major factors in the future prosperity of the state was the Erie Canal, which opened in 1825, the year this atlas was published. The route of the "Gr. Canal" is depicted here as are the major roadways in the state. Phillips, Atlases, 3669-9; cf. Ristow, American Maps and Mapmakers , pp.191-198; Rumsey 2755.009; cf. Sabin 94323.

        Olive Branch - Trade Card

      1825. A remarkable trade card for the Hudson River steamboat that was the key to breaking the monopoly of Robert Fulton, Jr. & Robert R. Livingston on Hudson River navigation. The birth of the Hudson River steamboat trade and the story of its' creators efforts to maintain their monopoly is a long and varied tale. Fulton, the first successful operator of a commercial steam boat in America & his partner/uncle-in-law, Robert R. Livingston (The Chancellor), were granted exclusivity to ply the Hudson River route in 1808. NY State granted these contracts as a way of developing infrastructure, which they did not fund as a state at that point. For each boat put on the Hudson, Fulton/Livingston were granted another 5 year exclusive contract, up to 30 years. Their monopoly lead unsurprisingly to monopolistic pricing. In 1811, a court challenge to their exclusive deal was brought and Chancery Court judge John Lansing, Jr., broke the monopoly. This was complicated by the fact that Judge Lansing was related to Robert Livingston (his grandson, Edward Livingston (1796-1842) married Lansing's daughter, Sara Ray Lansing (1797-1831.) A year later, a successful appeal to the Supreme Court of the State of New York allowed Livingston and Fulton to maintain their highly profitable monopoly over the water ways of New York. Lansing disappeared under mysterious circumstances in 1829. (He had financial difficulties and had also reported corruption and inefficiency in the Chancery Court to the Governor, so it seems there were plenty of other enemies besides his relatives.) Robert Robert Livingston IV (1746-1813), was a Founding Father of the United States, First Chancellor of NY and swore Washington in as President on his bible, as well as helping to write the Declaration of Independence. In 1801, he was in France negotiating with Napoleon to buy the Louisiana Purchase. Robert Fulton was also there, and the two designed and launched a steamboat in the Seine. It sank, but their relationship continued. Fulton went to England -akin to switching sides in the times of French/English wars. He had a steam engine built by Boulton & Watts, the inventors of same, and that became the engine of the "Clermont", named after the home of Robert R. Livingston on the Hudson River. When Robert R. died in 1813, he passed his share of the steamboat business to the husbands of his two daughters, Elizabeth (1780-1829) and Margaret Maria (1783-1818). Both daughters married Livingston relations, Elizabeth marrying Edward Philip Livingston (1779-1843) and Margaret marrying Robert L. Livingston 1775-1843). Robert R's younger brother was John R. Livingston, who is largely described as a merchant during the Revolutionary War after a short stint as a soldier, and it is implied that he had shady deals in his past. (See Clermont State Historic Site, http://clermontstatehistoricsite.blogspot.com/2016/05/was-john-r-livingston-murderer.html) John R. also aspired to participate in the wealth of the steamboat trade. In 1808, he purchased a license to trade between New Jersey and Staten Island, but not to conduct trade on the Hudson River. Sometime after it was built in 1816, he purchased the Olive Branch from the North River Steamboat Co. In 1817, there were only 17 ships on the Hudson River. By 1820, there were 69 boats and competition was becoming fierce. Although John R. and many others tried to break the monopoly on the Hudson, it was continuously affirmed by NY State courts until it was weakened in 1824 by the US Supreme Court decision in Gibbons v. Ogden, which supported the regulation of interstate commerce by the Federal government. There were ongoing cases in the Court of Errors in Albany. In June 1824, the case of the North River Steamboat Co. vs. John R. Livingston was heard, but the monopoly was finally broken with the appeal decision (Feb 28, 1825, North River Steamboat Co. (appellant) v. John R. Livingston (respondent). So, the Olive Branch was the instrument of destruction of the monopoly on the Hudson that had run almost continuously from 1808 to 1824. The Olive Branch successfully plied the route from NYC to Troy until 1826, when she was abandoned. This original hand-typeset trade card, issued between 1823 and 1827, is momentously important to enforcing the Federal power of interstate commerce. Pre-1830 trade cards are excessively rare in the trade and in collections. 2 1/2 x 3 5/8". Black type on cream card stock, with an engaging image of a steamboat surrounded by an oval notched border. "The Steam-Boat OLIVE BRANCH, Captain Henry Moore, From New - York, Foot of Liberty-street, at 5 o'clock P.M. Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. From Albany, Monday Wednesday and Friday, at 4 o'clock, P.M. Fare $3 in the Cabin; Forward the Shaft on Deck, $1 50 Table and Accommodations, equal to any on the River." On the verso, in a later but early hand "Built for and owned By Robt. Montg. Livingston" (an incorrect comment.) A trace of foxing but in very good condition. A great rarity, of great historic importance to the Hudson River.

He converted He would be a Soldier of Pilon into The High Road to Success, and produced it at the Olympic. He was responsible for an adaptation of Walter Scott's Marmion, played at an outlying theatre. For a short period he edited the Monthly Mirror, to which, and to The Cabinet, he contributed fugitive pieces. A portrait of Oxberry by Samuel De Wilde, in the Garrick Club, shows him as Petro in Arnold's Devil's Bridge. An engraving of him as Leo Luminati in Oh! this Love is in the Theatrical Inquisitor (Vol. I); and a second, presenting him in private dress, is in Oxberry's Dramatic Biography, a work projected by Oxberry, and edited after his death by his widow; it was published in parts, beginning 1 January 1825. After the completion of the first volume in April 1825 the issue was continued in volumes, and was completed in five vols. in 1826.

        Napoli alla villa reale

      1825 - - Naples circa. 1825, 14,7x19,4cm, une feuille sous marie-louise. - Belle aquarelle originale représentant la baie de Naples et le belvédère de la villa Reale, inscrite dans la marge inférieure : napoli alla villa Reale. Rare vue du belvédère des jardins de la Villa Reale Comunale, l'un des principaux parcs historiques de Naples, qui s'étend sur près d'un kilomètre. Aménagé dès la fin du XVIIe siècle, il fut transformé en véritable jardin urbain avant de subir des agrandissements à l'époque napoléonienne par les architectes Stefano Gasse et Paolo Ambrosino, qui ont ajouté des chemins et des parterres de fleurs dans le style romantique. Les jardins, avec la place de la Victoire dans le lointain sont ici dépeints tels qu'ils l'étaient dans le premier quart du XIXe siècle, après les aménagements de Gasse et Ambrosino. Ce type d'aquarelles napolitaines de grande qualité était très prisé chez les voyageurs européens fortunés, qui effectuaient le traditionnel "Tour d'Italie", un pèlerinage à travers les paysages bucoliques et les grandes villes d'Italie. Cette aquarelle faisait partie d'un album amicorum de 1825-1826 assemblant des estampes de paysages lacustres et de villes portuaires (Naples, lac de Côme, lac Majeur.) parmi des gravures, lithographies, dessins, et lavis réalisés dans le premier quart du XIXe siècle. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] Original anonymous watercolor representing the bay of Naples and the belvedere of Villa Reale , inscribed in the bottom margin: napoli alla villa Reale . View of the belvedere of the gardens of Villa Reale Comunale , one of Naples' most important historical parks, which stretches over a kilometer. Built at the end of the 17th century, it was transformed into a real urban garden before undergoing enlargements in the Napoleonic era by architects Stefano Gasse and Paolo Ambrosino, who added paths and flower beds in the romantic style. The gardens, with the Place de la Victoire in the distance are here depicted as they were at the beginning of the XIXth century. This type of Neapolitan watercolors was popular among wealthy European travelers, who carried out the traditional "Tour d'Italia", a pilgrimage through the bucolic landscapes and large cities of Italy. This watercolor was part of an amicorum album gathering views of lacustrine landscapes and port cities (Naples, Lake Como, Lake Maggiore .) among engravings, lithographs, drawings, and washings made in the first quarter of the 19th century century.

      Paris: Chez Pillet Ainé, 1825. 10pp. plus engraved titlepage and 112 plates and maps (two folding, forty handcolored). Folio. Expertly bound to style in blue-green calf and contemporary green cloth, spine gilt. Very good. The Freycinet expedition resulted in a total of four large atlases and nine accompanying volumes of text. "This later circumnavigation by Captain Freycinet was organized by the French government, under the recently restored Bourbon Dynasty, to show the flag around the world and to make scientific observations on geography, magnetism, and meteorology. It was one of the important voyages of exploration of the early nineteenth century. The URANIE sailed from Toulon to Gibraltar, Tenerife, Rio de Janeiro, Cape of Good Hope, Mascarene Islands, Western Australia, Timor, New Guinea, the Mariana Islands, Caroline Islands, Sandwich Islands, New South Wales, New Zealand, Tierra del Fuego, and the Falkland Islands, where the URANIE was shipwrecked in French Bay....The ship's doctors, Quoy and Gaimard, and the pharmacist Gaudichaud served as the naturalists, collected specimens, and published separate volumes on zoology and botany. Freycinet was clandestinely accompanied by his wife, Rose, after whom he named an island in the Samoan chain....The scientific results of Freycinet's explorations in Timor, the islands off New Guinea, the Marianas, and Hawaii were particularly significant and added greatly to the fund of knowledge that the Europeans had of the geography, cultures, and histories of these areas. The writings on the penal colony of Port Jackson, Australia, are of special historic importance" - Hill. The voyage included a one-month visit in the Sandwich Islands, with time spent in Hawaii, Maui, and Oahu, as well as visits to Rio de Janeiro, Cape of Good Hope, Montevideo, Mauritius, New South Wales, and the Caroline Islands. The handsome plates in the atlases, many of which are colored, add greatly to the ethnographic and natural historical aspect of the work. FERGUSON 941. HILL 649. SABIN 25916. FORBES 602.
