        New York 1850 ? Louis Le Breton.

      NEW YORK 1850 ?BUSTLING WITH ENERGYLithograph by Auguste Bry after the design of Louis Le Breton, published in Paris by E. Savary around 1850. Coloured by a later hand. Size (image): 32,5 x 48,5 cmLouis Le Breton (1818-1866) was a surgeon in the French Navy from 1836-48. During that period he made several very long expeditions including Dumont d'Urville's second circumnavigation (1837-40) aboard the Astrolabe. During that journey and on subsequent trips, he made drawings and watercolour views of noteworthy places, including Sacramento and San Francisco, New Orleans and Boston, Rio de Janeiro, sites in Oceania, New Zealand and Africa, as well as this view approaching New York. Le Breton's watercolours of the Astrolabe voyage were exhibited at the Salon de Paris during the years 1841-48.The boat in this New York scene is a paddlewheel steamship-triple masted sailing ship: the smoky, dangerous transitional boats that ultimately became all steam and built of steel. We see it steam, pumping out a black funnel of smoke, towards the East River, Fort William on Governor's Island on the right, Fort Clinton at the Battery on the left. As we look at the city, there are a number of fanciful architectural additions mixed with the buildings that were actually there. This is however clearly based on first-hand impressions. The scene the visitor to New York in the 1840s encountered would have been nearly overwhelming. There were far more boats in the harbour than there are today. The lower portion of the island was lined with piers and warehouses. There was an immense amount of activity , both import and export, rapidly establishing New York as the primary American port.Le Breton, in a characteristically French way, added elegant turrets and spires and made the warehouses more evocative than they could have been, but in all communicating a true impression of a city exuding energy.Price: ? 2.950,- (incl. frame).

        Account [of] Sales of the Goods and Chattles of the Personal Estate

      1850. (SLAVERY) (BRISCOE, Samuel J.) TURNER, John R., clerk. Account [of] Sales of the Goods and Chattles of the Personal Estate of Samuel J. Briscoe late of Charles County Deceased. Chaptico, Maryland, circa 1850. Small folio (8 by 12 inches), string-bound ledger, 12 leaves (four blank). Housed in custom chemise and slipcase. $2600.Original manuscript ledger of the public estate sale of Samuel J. Briscoe, tobacco farmer of Charles County, Maryland, and owner of 23 slaves, seven of whom were court-ordered to be reunited with the Briscoe family— for a price.Charles County, Maryland was tobacco country. Indians in the region had long grown tobacco, mostly for ceremonial purposes. “It was natural for the settlers to farm tobacco. The land was well suited to it and the Virginia colonies had for some time been growing tobacco and selling it to England at a nice profitÂ… The biggest problem of the infant County was labor. To prosper, [a farmer] needed cheap or free labor to work the fields. The institution of slavery was legalized in Maryland in 1663Â… [and], as the large landowners prospered, the number of slaves entering the County increasedÂ… So important was cheap labor to plantation owners that at the end of the Civil War, with the abolition of slavery, Charles County suffered an agricultural depression from which it did not fully recover until the 1920s” (Charles County Bicentennial Committee). Tobacco farmer Samuel J. Briscoe, who in 1830 had joined in a cooperative that supplied Philadelphians with their tobacco, owned 23 slaves. Briscoe died around 1850. He apparently died either intestate or in great debt, requiring even his own family members to buy items from his estate at public sale. Chief among the “chattles” for sale were his slaves: five men, four women, seven boys and seven girls. Present at the sale were A.L. Briscoe (and his wife), Janett Eleanor Briscoe (“Miss Jeanette”), “Miss C. Briscoe,” Walter Hanson Briscoe (“H. Briscoe”), William D. Briscoe and “Miss Nannie Briscoe.” “By order of [the] Court,” the family was able to buy back four of the men, Jim, Plato, Dick Brown, and Ben, the woman Matilda, and girls Susan and Martha. The familyÂ’s remaining purchases were primarily household furnishings, bedding, and horse trappings, with the exception of the “Family Bible” bought by Miss Nannie for “12-1/2” cents. Bookplate of San Francisco collector Francis A. Martin, Jr.Extremely good condition, with only a few ink smudges, minor patches of foxing, and shallow chipping to bottom corner. Scarce.

        Rio de Janeiro - Sabatier, c. 1850.

      RARE MID 19TH CENTURY VIEW OF RIO DE JANEIRO?Rio-Janeiro?. Lithography by L?on Jean-Babtiste Sabatier and Lauvergue after Sabatier and Bayot, printed at Cattier in Paris for Bulla & Jouy and Ernest Gambart around 1850. Coloured by a later hand. Size (view): 40 x 55,5 cm (sheet: 63 x 79,5 cm).View of Guanabara Bay on May 6, 1843, before princess Francisca, sister of Emperor Pedro II of Brazil, and her husband, Fran?ois d?Orl?ans, Prince of Joinville, board the ?Belle Poule?. The couple married in Rio de Janeiro on 1 May 1843 and headed for France in the days thereafter. (Read more about the Marriage Princess Francisca and Prince de Joinville, May 1843)The 60-gun frigate Belle Poule (1828?1888), famous for bringing back the remains of Napol?on from Saint Helena to France in 1840, was under command of the Prince of Joinville.19th-century Empire of Brazil, until 1822 a colony of the Kingdom of Portugal, was under the rule of Emperors Dom Pedro I and his son Dom Pedro II. Unlike most of the neighbouring Hispanic American republics, Brazil had political stability, vibrant economic growth, constitutionally guaranteed freedom of speech, and respect for civil rights of its subjects, albeit with legal restrictions on women and slaves.The monarchy managed to bring peace and stability to the country, which eventually became an emerging international power. With prosperity and economic development came an influx of European immigration, including protestants and jews, although Brazil remained mostly catholic. Slavery, which had initially been widespread, was restricted by successive legislation until its final abolition in 1888. Brazilian visual arts, literature and theatre developed during this time of progress. Although heavily influenced by European styles that ranged from Neoclassicism to Romanticism, each concept was adapted to create a culture that was uniquely Brazilian.Until the early years of the 20th century, Rio de Janeiro was largely limited to the neighbourhood now known as the historic city centre, on the mouth of Guanabara Bay.L?on Jean-Babtiste Sabatier (? - 1887) was a French painter, engraver and draftsman who made a number of picturesque views. He exhibited at the Paris Salon from 1827 to 1870, obtaining a bronze medal in 1839. An other view by Sabatier can be found here.Price: ?1.750,-.

        Manuscript indenture document (slave deed)

      , 1850. 1850. WALKER, George. Manuscript indenture document transferring ownership of five slaves. Charleston, South Carolina, February 20, 1850. Broadside, two leaves of blue ruled paper conjoined by fold along lower edge, measuring 21-1/2 inches by 14-1/4 inches, penned in a fine secretarial hand on rectos, signed and sealed on fold at lower margin, docketed and certified on verso of second leaf. $1600.Large, ornately penned 1850 Charleston, South Carolina, manuscript slave deed formalizing the purchase (for $5.00) and gifting of five slaves, ""Emma, Charles, Louisa, William and Isaac"" to Charles Walker and Mary Desel as a wedding present from Mary's father, Charles Lewis Desel (a physician) and John Bickley (a planter).Charles Desel owned Liberty Hall, an inland rice plantation north of Charleston. John James Audubon visited Desel at Liberty Hall on several occasions to hunt and observe birds and other wildlife. The document is signed and sealed by the two gifting parties (Charles Desel and John Bickley) and the two receiving parties (Mary Desel and George Walker) along the lower margin of the first leaf. It is interesting to note that the contract stipulates the right of the possessor ""To have and to hold the said negro slaves, with the future issue and increase of the females"" and of course grants the owners the right ""to take the wages, profit, income, and use of the said negro slaves… for the maintenance and support of them [the owners], and of the children of the said intended marriage, if any there shall be."" Indeed, much of this document is concerned with establishing who would own the slaves in the case of the death of Mary or George: should Mary die first, the slaves would become Charles' property; however, if Charles were to die first, then ownership would go first to any children of the couple, to be split equally among them if they were to have more than one child, only reverting to Mary if there were no children. Should Mary and Charles both die, the slaves would then become the property of Bickley, who somewhat curiously purchased them from Mary's father for the sum of five dollars on the condition that they were to be given by him as a gift to the newly married couple. Examined, certified and docketed in several hands on verso of second leaf. Two small tears with minor loss along vertical centerfold of first leaf, affecting a few words but not legibility, second leaf split vertically along corresponding centerfold; small chip to right margin, not affecting legibility. An extremely good and scarce document.

        Rotterdam, Oude Haven - Sabatier, ca. 1850.

      DE OUDE HAVEN TE ROTTERDAM.?Rotterdam Le Port?. Lithografie gemaakt door Léon Jean-Babtiste Sabatier, uitgegeven rond 1850 door Jacomme voor Bulla & Jouy te Parijs, Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 39,5 x 57 cm.Rond 1850 heeft Rotterdam nog de kenmerkende driehoeksvorm, die begrensd wordt door de vestinggrachten aan Coolsingel en Goudsesingel en door de Maas.Rotterdam is een kleine maar aardige stad, die op menige buitenstaander indruk maakt. Het welgestelde deel van de Rotterdammers woont bezuiden de Hoogstraat, waar de havens zijn. In dit buitendijkse deel van Rotterdam, de ?Waterstad? (op de prent links), houden eb en vloed de grachten schoon. In het binnendijkse deel van de stadsdriehoek, benoorden de Hoogstraat, wonen dichtopeengepakt de arbeiders die in de haven en de industrie werken. Dit overbevolkte deel van de stad stinkt omdat menselijk en dierlijk afval (illegaal) in het nagenoeg stilstaande water in sloten en grachten wordt gestort.Halverwege de negentiende eeuw veranderde het karakter van de Rotterdamse haven. Lange tijd had het accent gelegen op de zogeheten ?eigenhandel?: handelaren kochten goederen in, sloegen die op in pakhuizen en verkochten ze weer. Rond 1850 werd de ?transitohandel? belangrijker: de klanten in het (veelal Duitse) achterland kochten hun handelswaar direct bij de producent en lieten ze in Rotterdam, eventueel na bewerking, alleen nog maar overslaan op binnenvaartschepen.Op de prent zien we in de Oude Haven, tussen Geldersche kaai en Spaansche kaai, zee- en binnenvaartschepen in de weer. In de verte torent de Laurenskerk.Léon Jean-Babtiste Sabatier (? - 1887) was een Franse schilder, graveur en tekenaar die meerdere schilderachtige stadsgezichten maakte. Hij exposeerde in de Salon te Parijs van 1827 tot 1870 en kreeg een bronzen medaille in 1839. Een ander stadsgezicht gemaakt door Sabatier vindt u hier.Prijs: ?2.250,- (incl. lijst).

      1850. (WILKES, Charles) JENKINS, John S. United States Exploring Expeditions. Voyage of the U.S. Exploring Squadron, Commanded by Captain Charles Wilkes. Auburn: James M. Alden, 1850. Thick octavo, original slate gray cloth gilt. $2800.Condensed edition of “the beginning of accurate western cartography,” the narrative of WilkesÂ’ landmark Pacific expedition (Goetzmann, 57), with seven full-page steel-engravings and one map. Presentation/dedication copy from “the Author” to New York attorney Isaac Fryer, to whom the book is dedicated.Wilkes stands alongside James Cook as the most important explorer of the Pacific; he is certainly the most important naval scientist in American history. Between 1838 and 1842 his six-vessel expedition carefully charted the expanse from the northwest coast of North America to the shores of Antarctica, from the western coast of South America to the South Pacific islands. He surveyed nearly 300 islands along with 1500 miles of the Antarctic coastline. Wilkes also encountered natives of various cultures, many of whom are pictured in the plates. Upstate New York lawyer John Jenkins prepared this condensation of WilkesÂ’ original six-volume work (1844) “as it might be of interest to the general reader.” Added to Wilkes are accounts of the expeditions of dÂ’Urville, Ross and Lynch. Hill 884. Ferguson 5404. Sabin 36014. See also Howes W414; Eberstadt 119:184; Streeter 3324. Owner signature.Interior near-fine, moderate rubbing to original cloth. A very desirable presentation copy.

The book was also issued without hand-coloring and OCLC locates two plain copies: The Morgan Library & Museum (NY, USA) and Harvard University, Houghton Library (MA, USA)"It is to be regretted that space will not serve to represent the caricaturists and depictors of manners who followed in the wake of Daumier and Gavarni. Among the most attractive of the former is Amédée de Noé, known as Cham (that is, Ham, the son of Noah) of whom it was said that he had 'an idea a day' for Le charivari. A good proportion of his thousands of lithographs were gathered into albums. His contributions to the Album du siège , in which Daumier was his collaborator, are typical of his work" (Ray, The Art of the French Illustrated Book, pp. 155-156). [Attributes: First Edition]
