Marc-Antoine Caillot and the Company of the Indies in Louisiana : trade in the French Atlantic world by Erin Greenwald( )

7 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 651 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Between 1717 and 1731, the French Company of the Indies (Compagnie des Indes) held a virtual monopoly over Louisiana culture and trade. Among numerous controls, its administrators oversaw the slave trade, the immigration of free and indentured whites, negotiations with Native American peoples, and the purchase and exportation of Louisiana-grown tobacco. In Marc-Antoine Caillot and the Company of the Indies in Louisiana, Erin M. Greenwald situates the colony within a French Atlantic circuit stretching from Paris and the Brittany coast to Africa's Senegambian region to the West Indies to Louisiana and back. Focusing on the travels and travails of Marc-Antoine Caillot, a company clerk who set sail for Louisiana in 1729, Greenwald deftly examines the company's role as colonizer, developer, slaveholder, commercial entity, and deal maker. As the company's focus shifted away from agriculture with the reversion of Louisiana to the French crown in 1731, so too did the lives of the individuals whose fortunes were bound up in the company's trade, colonization, and agricultural mission in the Americas. Greenwald's microhistorical focus on Caillot provides an engaging narrative for readers interested in the culture and society of early Louisiana and its place in the larger French Atlantic world"--From publisher's website

New Orleans, the founding era( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Présentation de l'éditeur : "In 2018, in honor of the tricentennial of the founding of New Orleans, a groundbreaking exhibition and companion catalog celebrate the diversity of the city s earliest populations. New Orleans, the Founding Era gathers contributions from nine leading scholars of the French Atlantic world and features an illustrated checklist of artifacts from public and private collections across France, Spain, Canada, and the United States. This dual-language publication from The Historic New Orleans Collection explores the ideas, peoples, and material cultures that shaped one of the most complex and challenging colonization projects in the Americas. Louisiana in the early eighteenth century experienced an intense period of immigration, as nearly six thousand French- and Germanspeaking Europeans and a roughly equal number of enslaved captives taken from Africa arrived in the French territory. Those who survived first the crossing, and then exposure to the New World s diseases, established the roots of a blended, Creole culture that persists to this day. The newcomers mingled with, learned from, and occasionally clashed with the native people who had long occupied the riverfront site chosen for New Orleans. As a cultural, economic, and diplomatic crossroads of both the lower Mississippi valley and the broader Atlantic world, New Orleans was shaped by influences that stretched south from Nouvelle France and the Illinois Country, north from the Caribbean, and east from the Bight of Benin to the Brittany coast. Richly illustrated and compellingly narrated, New Orleans, the Founding Era reflects the kaleidoscopic array of cultures that gave rise to this most cosmopolitan of North American cities"

Company towns and tropical baptisms : from Lorient to Louisiana on a French Atlantic circuit by Erin Greenwald( )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1729 the French Company of the Indies (Compagnie des Indes) operated more than two dozen coastal and riverine comptoirs, or trade outposts, along waterways stretching from the upper Mississippi Valley to the West African coast to the Bay of Bengal in Southeast Asia. The Company, administered by an assembly of Paris-centered directors, shareholders, and syndics, stood on the verge of initiating self-directed changes that would simultaneously diminish its functional and geographic scope and place it on firm financial footing for the first time since its mid-seventeenth-century inception. For unlike the Dutch and English monopoly companies, the French Company of the Indies prior to 1731 did not restrict its mission to trade alone; nor did the Company limit its operational sphere to the East Indies. Instead the Company spread its ships, bureaucrats, soldiers, laborers, and cargoes across the Atlantic and Indian oceans. In Louisiana during the second decade of the eighteenth century, the Company made a last unsuccessful bid in its quest to extract wealth from company-directed agricultural endeavors. As the Company's focus shifted away from agriculture with the retrocession of the colony to the king in 1731, so too did the life courses of individuals whose fortunes were bound up in the Company's trade, colonization, and agricultural mission in the Americas. Through the lens of an unpublished contemporary account penned by Marc Antoine Caillot, a clerk with the Company of the Indies during its last years in Louisiana, "Company Towns and Tropical Baptisms" situates the colony within the French Atlantic circuit that stretched from Paris and the Brittany Coast to Africa's Senegambian region to the West Indies to Louisiana and back, and examines the Company's role as colonizer, developer, slave holder, commercial entity, and deal maker between 1717 and 1731
