Description:

Two fascinating charts of the Hawaiian Islands, illustrating the charting of the islands by La Perouse and the compilation of the data from La Perouse and Cook's explorations in the Hawaiian Islands.

La Perouse sailed though the Hawaiian Islands in March 1786, making the observations recorded in the top map.  The lower map shows a synthesis of the La Perouse's observations with those reported by Cook. 

A fine example of one of the best 18th Century maps of Hawaii and one of the largest.
