Series II. Prints from the Olds Collection Donated by White & Case, 1761-1894. 2.63 Linear feet in flat files and one flat box

Scope and Contents

The series holds about 120 prints originally from the Olds collection that were donated by the law firm White & Case to N-YHS in 2018. Similar to Series I, the subjects of the prints are naval battles of the American Revolution, War of 1812, and Tripolitan War; other military scenes from those wars; portraits of notable Americans, especially George Washington; views of New York City, the surrounding area, and upstate New York along the Hudson River; scenes from America's colonial history, such as William Penn's treaty with the Indians; and a few maps of Virginia and south. An unusual format for this collection is the music score for "Old Ironsides" inscribed to Commodore Charles Stewart by the composer, Charles T. Frey (Item 560).

All the items in the series are listed individually in the container list. The descriptions are based on the inventory provided by White & Case, observation of the object, and the original Olds catalogue to the extent the object could be explicitly linked to the catalogue.

Arrangement

The container list of the series is arranged by White & Case's inventory number. For some of the objects, an original Olds catalogue number was found on the print or frame; in those instances, the Olds number was also included in the container list label.

Credit Line for Series II

"Donated to the New-York Historical Society in 2018 by White & Case LLP in memory of Irving Olds."
