        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, 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.

Oxberry was author of: ·       The Theatrical Banquet, or the Actor's Budget, 1809, 2 vols. ·       The Encyclopædia of Anecdote, 1812. ·       The History of Pugilism, and Memoirs of Persons who have distinguished themselves in that Science, 1814. ·       The Flowers of Literature, 2nd edit., London, 1824, 4 vols. ·       Oxberry's Anecdotes of the Stage, London, 1827.

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.

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.

        L'hermitage des Camaldoli

      Florence circa. 1825, 23,2x16,8cm, une feuille sous marie-louise. Florence circa. 1825, 23,2x16,8cm, une feuille sous marie-louise. - Original lithograph signed Florence Lit. Salucci 97 ° 515 in the lower right corner and Chatlotte in the lower left corner. View of the hermitage of Calmadoli in the upper valley of the Arno in Tuscany. It was made in Florence by Salucci, a lithographer who worked for the Bonaparte family, and who, among other things, produced a portrait of Napoleon III (Bibliothèque nationale de France). This lithograph of exceptional quality was realized for Charlotte Bonaparte (mention Charlotte lower left). The Tuscan village of Camaldoli, the cradle of the Benedictine order of the Camaldolese from the early eleventh century, only guessing through the vegetation, its two towers rebuilt 1713 visible between two trees. The monastery was a favorite stop of the spouses Bonaparte, Napoleon Charlotte and Louis, siblings and nephews cousins of Napoleon 1st, married in 1826 in Florence. Their common passion for the arts leads them to frequent artists who encourage them in their intense activity and with whom they collaborate, such as Salucci, who performs this lithography for Charlotte Bonaparte, but also the engraver Samuele Jesi, the painter Leopold Robert or the draftsman Giovanni Riveruzzi ... Both travel the region whose landscapes inspire them and stay in the Tuscan villages to which they are attached. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Lithographie originale signée Florence Lit. Salucci 97°515 dans l'angle inférieur droit et Charlotte dans l'angle inférieur gauche.  Vue de l'ermitage de Calmadoli dans la haute vallée de l'Arno en Toscane. Cette lithographie d'une exceptionnelle qualité fut réalisée d'après un dessin de Charlotte Bonaparte (mention Charlotte en bas à gauche), et exécutée à Florence par Salucci, lithographe ayant travaillé pour le compte de la famille Bonaparte, et qui a entre autres réalisé un portrait de Napoléon III (Bibliothèque nationale de France). Le village toscan de Camaldoli, berceau de l'ordre bénédictin des Camaldules depuis le début du XIe siècle, se devine seulement à travers la végétation, ses deux tours reconstruites vers 1713 visibles entre deux arbres. Le monastère était une halte privilégiée des époux Bonaparte, Charlotte et Napoléon-Louis, neveux de Napoléon 1er, mariés en 1826 à Florence. Tous deux parcourent la Toscane dont les paysages inspirent à Charlotte de charmants croquis dans un style romantique raffiné. La passion commune des deux époux pour les arts les amène à fréquenter des artistes qui les encouragent dans leur intense activité et avec qui ils collaborent, comme Salucci, qui exécute cette lithographie pour Charlotte Bonaparte, mais aussi le graveur Samuele Jesi, le peintre Leopold Robert ou le dessinateur Giovanni Riveruzzi. L'artiste, la princesse Charlotte Bonaparte (1802-1839), nièce de Napoléon Ier et peintre de grand talent à la personnalité forte et attachante, fut un membre éminent de la société européenne cultivée de la première moitié du XIXe siècle. Dès son plus jeune âge, elle est plongée dans les fastes de l'empire puis dans les déboires de l'ère post-napoléonienne, qui contraint sa famille à l'exil à travers l'Europe et outre-Atlantique. Malgré la chute de l'empire elle s'entoure d'artistes tout au long de sa vie, et navigue entre l'Italie, l'Angleterre, les Etats-Unis d'Amérique et deviendra même l'élève de David durant son séjour à Bruxelles entre 1820 et 1821. Arrivée à Florence en 1824, elle n'a de cesse de parcourir et immortaliser les paysages toscans et y forme également un salon artistique qui rassemble habitués, artistes italiens et étrangers, intellectuels et membres de la famille Bonaparte.   une feuille

        A Voyage Towards the South Pole, Performed in the Years 1822-24. Containing an Examination of the Antarctic Sea, to the seventy-fourth Degree of Latitude: and a Visit to Tierra del Fuego, with a Particular Account of the Inhabitants. To which is added, much Useful Information on the Coasting Navigation of Cape Horn, and the Adjacent Lands, with Charts of Harbours, etc.

      London: for Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, Brown, and Green, 1825 - Octavo (225 x 140 mm). Uncut in original boards, sometime rebacked retaining the original paper spine label. Ownership inscription, "M. A. Wilson, May 1955", and recent book label of American bibliophile and noted polar collector Martin L. Greene to the front pastedown. With the errata slip and the publisher's 16-page catalogue, "sometimes removed by contemporary binders" (Rosove). A few small scuffs to boards, tips rubbed, front inner hinge superficially cracked, but firm, a few leaves faintly dog-eared, very short closed tear to stub of map facing p. 1, plate facing p. 172 offset, second plate of coastal profiles foxed, the contents otherwise with only a few trivial marks. An excellent copy. Hand-coloured aquatint frontispiece, 8 engraved charts of which 6 folding, 6 aquatint plates comprising 4 illustrations of ships and seals after Weddell and 2 folding plates of coastal profiles. First edition. With the ownership inscription of British pilot, African treasure-hunter and Antarctic explorer Frank Bickerton, as "Capt. R. F. C. 1917", to the front pastedown. A stirring provenance: Bickerton was one of the first students to enrol on the new aeronautical engineering programme at the City and Guilds London Institute in 1906, and was recruited shortly after to the Australian Antarctic Expedition of 1911-14, becoming the first to deploy a propeller-driven sledge on the Antarctic, and participating in a famous 1,600-mile sledge journey across previously uncharted territory, later receiving the King's Polar Medal in silver and having Cape Bickerton named in his honour. The expedition was "one of the most successful to be undertaken during the whole of the Heroic Age", and its achievements easily surpassed those of Shackleton's Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition, which Bickerton was set to join before the onset of war, before enlisting instead in the Royal Flying Corps (Haddesley, Born Adventurer: The Life of Frank Bickerton, Antarctic Pioneer, introduction). Over the course of a two-year sealing voyage, Weddell and his crew reached latitude 74°15'', the southernmost then achieved, discovering what is now known as the Weddell Sea, and also visited and described the Cape Verde Islands, South Orkney (which Weddell is credited with having discovered on his 1819-21 voyage), South Shetland, and South Georgia, before wintering in the Falklands and making further landfalls at Tierra del Fuego, Patagonia, and Montevideo on the return journey. "Even when sail ships were replaced by steam ships, and wooden hulls by metallic ice-cutters, his explorations were difficult to duplicate" (idem); his narrative is also "recognized as of considerable importance for its account of the voyage and its survey of the South Shetlands" (ODNB). A highly appealing copy of the book considered "the true starting point for an Antarctic collection" (Taurus). Hill 1843; NMM I 1082 for the second edition; Rosove 345.A1; Taurus 4.

      Paris, Adrien Egron 1825 - 4 vol. in-8, [4]-XVI-295, [4]-319, [4]-384 et [4]-368 pp., avec un feuillet de musique notée (Bals de Saintonge, danses villageoises), demi-basane havane, dos lisses ornés de filets dorés, tranches marbrées (reliure de l'époque). Dos insolés, rousseurs. Tirage à 1050 exemplaires numérotés à la main (150/1050). Evidemment, il n'existe aucun roman médiéval portant le nom de Raoul et Ermeline : c'est une invention de l'auteur, Pierre-Louis de Vaudreuil (1770-1853, membre fondateur par ailleurs de la Société archéologique de Charente-Maritime) pour accréditer son propre récit exalté et reconstitué de la chevalerie. Quoique assez oublié, l'ouvrage est typique du goût troubadour en littérature, et également de l'influence de ces rêveries médiévalistes sur des orientations plus concrètes de toute une génération en révolte contre la rationalité du XVIIIe siècle ou l'utilitarisme benthamien qui commençait de poindre.

        Mémoire sur les intégrales définies prises entre des limites imaginaires.

      Paris Chez de Bure Frères 1825 - First edition. 4to., [ii], 68, [1] pp., modern half calf, marbled boards, an excellent example. "Le plus court chemin entre deux vérités dans le domaine réel passe par le domaine complexe." "The shortest path between two truths in the real domain passes through the complex domain." (Jacques Hadamard). Augustin-Louis Cauchy was one of the greatest mathematicians of the modern era. This pamphlet, of which only 500 were printed, is widely regarded as one of Cauchy's most important contributions to mathematics. With it Cauchy created the key tool for the formalisation of the analysis of complex numbers. The theorem, know known as the Cauchy-Goursat theorem after Goursat managed to remove one of its constraints, allows mathematicians to simplify difficult functions in complex analysis. Technically it says that if two different paths connect the same two points, and a function is holomorphic everywhere "in between" the two paths, then the two path integrals of the function will be the same. A note about complex analysis: Complex numbers include the square root of -1. They become very useful when trying to solve difficult problems amongst the real numbers - a real number can be represented as the product of two complex numbers. One can then use the theory of complex numbers to deduce a result in the real numbers. Complex analysis is the mathematical field which develops theorems of functions of complex numbers. Whilst to the lay person, complex analysis is arcane, it is incredibly useful for physicists solving problems in such diverse fields as quantum mechanics, fluid dynamics and electrical engineering. A contemporary visual applications is development of complex scenery in computer-generated images; it is possible to generate very complex shapes using complex analysis with little computational power. A good example of this is a digital scene of a field of grass waving in the wind, which can be rendered using the tools of complex analysis. The Mandlebrot Set is another visually arresting (and infinitely complex) illustration of certain complex numbers. Grattan-Guinness, Landmark Writings in Western Mathematics 1640-1940, Ch. 28 (by F. Smithies); and see Smithies, Cauchy and the Creation of Complex Function Theory, Chapter IV [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
