Product Description

This original antique map of Hawaii comes from the Atlas Encyclopedique. This atlas was published in two volumes the first being in 1787 and the second 1788 by Bonne and Desmarest of De L'Academie Royale des Sciences Paris. This rare and important map of Hawaii was printed only 10 years after Captain Cook's first visit to the Islands. Cook's landing in 1778, while most likely not the first European landing, is credited as such as it is fully documented. It was on this discovery that Cook named them the Sandwich Islands. This authentic vintage map of Hawaii is printed on one side only with a blank reverse side using engraved copper plates on handmade paper. This one of a kind old map of Hawaii would make a fine Hawaii antique map gift.
