Description

Nice example of Ernest Dudley's Chase's map of Hawaii, published in 1960.

The map was produced to celebrate Hawaii's admission as the 50th State. As described on the Map & Atlas Museum of La Jolla website:

Geographical features include roads and volcanoes drawn in bird's-eye view perspective. Towns, national parks, beaches, landings, and channels are labeled. The borders are decorated with pictures of buildings, animals, pineapples and palm trees on the islands, and marine life and boats in the sea. Numerous captioned inset illustrations depict landmarks and scenery.
Surrounding the cartouche are keys for finding the post offices and points of interest on the map, along with brief texts about Hawaiian history and people, flora and fauna, the Mauna Loa volcano, holidays and festivals, the luau, and "Odd Facts."
The map publisher, Doris Riemann, owned a chain of bookstores in Alaska and Hawaii from 1959 to 1989.
