Versailles, le 24 avril Brochage d'origine maintenu par un ruban de soie bleu. The "Barbary corsairs" of the Mediterranean represented a real scourge for maritime traffic until the 19th century, capturing thousands of ships, attacking coastal towns and supplying slave traffic with captured crews. Although the attacks of the Barbary pirates peaked in the early mid-seventeenth century, they remained in the middle of the 18th century a constant threat to maritime traffic.
Thus, the French, Spanish and Italian fleets still regularly carry out retaliation or diplomacy missions to local rulers of Algiers, Tunis and Tripoli, sponsors or accomplices of privateers of the North African coasts. In this memoire, King Louis XV sets the framework for a mission sent to the Pasha of Tripoli in April to stop attacks and looting of French ships.
Following the bombing of Tripoli by the French in July against the city of Tripoli, the Treaty of 9 June is supposed to protect French ships from the acts of piracy of Tripolitans.

However, for the past three years, the corsairs of Tripoli have engaged in aggression and looting against French ships and crews: "All the French captains who had the misfortune to meet at sea corsairs of Tripoli were exposed to be removed all their effects and provisions which were in the propriety of these corsairs, and to be abused, some even received the bastarding at the risk of their life, and it was not possible to give up the navigation to the violence of the Tripolitans any longer ". Despite various diplomatic actions, these acts of piracy have not ceased.
King Louis XV therefore decided to send a squadron in front of Tripoli to get Pacha the restoration of the treaty, financial compensation and the punishment of corsairs having been identified. Before the arrival of this fleet, the captain of Revest is sent to deliver to the Pacha the King's courier detailing the damage caused by the corsairs and the requirements of the French sovereign.
The King requires the Pasha to punish those suffering the same treatment they have done to the French, to have all the French captains compensated for the looting done to them, and to effectively prevent their safety for the future, by adding to the treaty of an article that barely pronounced death against the "Rais" who will dare to plunder or insult a French ship in any way whatsoever ". The king also demands "the heads of the principal culprits, namely of a French renegade named Sicard, who is the author of thieves of the Tripolitans" and he adds to his letter to the Pacha the list of "Rais" to be punished.
In addition, he sets the amount of the required indemnity at between 5 and 6, sequins. And so that his demands are satisfied, the king specifies that "the captain de Revest will not hide from the Pasha that he must be immediately followed by several vessels of strength designed to support the just pretensions of his majesty SL, Half sheep of the time, paper on board with floral motifs and morocco reinforcements and wooden pegs: homemade binding made on board a ship using available materials, including fragments of nautical charts and handwritten navigation notes.

In , the French navy was fully engaged in the North American conflict in which it played a decisive role facing the British fleet. Its power is based on ships and modern artillery and on the quality of the training of its officers and crew. This handbook, an astonishing original document of which we have found no equivalents, brings together the sum of the technical, practical and scientific knowledge that an officer of the "Royale" had to acquire: astronomy, mathematics, tides, cartography, latitude and longitude, use of the compass and navigation instruments Its owner, who indicates on the title his initials and his rank: "Sieur P Also, its appearance and the materials used for its manufacture reveal the work of a sailboat or shoemaker rather than a bookbinder!

Chomel , avec notes de Louis Garneray, Paris, Nepveu, Nouveaux embarquements. Mai novembre Original Velum binding. A precious personal "logbook" of a Marseilles sailor covering a period of forty years, recounting his successive embarkations to the trade and in the "Royale", from until his capture on November 3, , his detention on the pontoons and at the Dartmoor Prison until May 27, , and his last embarkations from June to November 5, document of considerable value for the knowledge of the maritime environment of the end of the 18th century, the heavy traffic in the Mediterranean and beyond, with first-hand accounts of the battles of Aboukir and Trafalgar and the lives of French sailors trapped on British pontoons.
The manuscript includes: Part One: From the first embarkation to Trafalgar ; Part two: Captivity on the pontoons and at Dartmoor ; Third part: freedom refound. Latest boarding. May November First part: from the first embarkation to Trafalgar : it includes 31 embarkations, with a text indicating, for each ship, the detailed account of the navigation and a watercolor representing it. These navigations "to trade", all in the Mediterranean, except two in the Antilles, become from the 18th embarkation squadron sailing in the service of the King, the Republic, then the Emperor, whose first, after a fight against the English, ends with desertion and imprisonment.
The reading of this picturesque and poignant document leaves the impression of a whole life devoted to action: Scarcely arrived and despite all the vicissitudes, Jaubert immediately seeks another ship, as if the ground burns his feet; attitude that is not unlike that of the illustrious Duguay Trouin. The adventures experienced by Jaubert are innumerable: he finds himself a stowaway on an Italian brigantine; led the Pasha of Constantinople to Crete, the Grand Vizier of Crete to Constantinople, and Greek women from island to island; brings from Algiers to Marseille French slaves captured in Corfu; Loads of Calamata figs, oranges, butter, cheese and wax cattle Skyros?
This first part, hectic, ends in , after the 38th navigation, by incarceration "handcuffs and chain neck" Fort Saint-Nicolas of Marseille, then Toulon. It is illustrated with 31 watercolors, representing with remarkable precision the hulls and rigging of tartanes, boats, brigs, corvettes, bombards, chebecks, seneaux, vessels, brigantines, polacres, boulichous, frigates, schooners, etc It is therefore possible that Degun, talented watercolorist, detained himself on the Ganges, drew the ships that his companion of misfortune described him from preserved notes of his navigations.
The quality of these watercolors is close to the work of the portraitists of ships like "Roux" of Marseille. The variety of ships of all origins on which Jaubert resides constitutes a remarkable source of information on maritime traffic of the time in the Mediterranean, and actors: French, Italian, Spanish, Greek, Arab Jaubert also relates his enlistment on several ships of the "Royal", including the ship Scipio which participates in the Battle of Aboukir in figure the list of French squadron ships.
After various embarkations to trade, our sailor will join the French Navy in Jaubert is named gabier of hune on the ship The Formidable, armed with 80 guns, which leaves for Gibraltar to the Antilles, in the squadron of Admiral Villeneuve. His account relates various adventures of sea and gives the detail of the victorious military operations of the Admiral against the English in Martinique, then in Guadeloupe, as well as made catches.
On the return from Guadeloupe, off the Azores, the ship "takes an English marching ship, a a corsair ditto with a catch of a Spanish merchant ship coming from India loaded with dry goods of the 'Indies and of eight million silver coins we took in tow and the same evening we burn the merchant ship taken English and the privateer who had made the Spanish catch End of June After taking part in the Cape Finisterre naval battle of July 22, , the Formidable October 20 leaves Cadiz and participates in the battle of Trafalgar October 21, which he manages to escape, despite many damage.
The story of the Battle of Trafalgar is extremely rich and provides details of both the course of action and the reasons for the success of the English fleet.
It ends with the following remark: "I will not forget to tell you that before starting the last fight, General Dumanoir told us:" let's go and fight my children I will take you to a place where you will be well rested. He was very right because I am in prison in my 9th year without knowing when I will come out.
Thus, on the 3rd of November, Jaubert and all the crew of the Formidable were taken prisoner by the English, and conducted on the pontoon "The Generous" at Plymouth. Following are the detailed tables of the French, Spanish and English fleets with their armament. In addition, an ink wash titled "The Formidable taken by the ship Namur November 4, " illustrates the story of the battle. This first part is of a playful style, popular, and without orthographic concern. It is obviously from Jaubert's hand. Part 2: Captivity on the pontoons and Dartmoor The stories that follow relate to the conditions of J.
Jaubert and his comrades on the Plymouth Pontoons and in the terrible Dartmoor Prison. They are illustrated with 3 gouaches representing, first, the three pontoons where Jean Jaubert was a prisoner "The pontoon the generous Captain Lanyon Remained 9 months The pontoon the hector captain The thorn remained 65 months The pontoon the ganges captain the red remained for 27 months " , the second" the Neptune pontoon [The Neptune], Captain Lorence, ", and the last the" Dartmoor prison of war the 25 of May "or, at the foot of the page" the prison of French dartimor guarded by the commander Kotgrave ".
The style and the spelling being more chastised, it is probable that a companion assisted Jaubert in his writing.
November 16, " , sometimes is the spokesperson of all the prisoners of the pontoons, in a classic style, and even literary, with an excellent spelling 2, 4, 5.
