Carte des Iles Hawaii.

(Map of the islands of Hawaii)

Issued 1834 by M. D'Urville. Engraved by Amb. Tardieu.

Fine early 19th century engraved map. Scarcer than the earlier Cook maps of these islands. Inset of Oahou lower left, many place names on the big island.

Light uniform paper age toning, original fold lines, remaining clean - a pleasing and well preserved visual example.

Sheet measures c. 10 7/8" x 14 3/4".

Printed area measures c. 8 5/8" x 13".

Tooley's Dictionary of Mapmakers, v. 1, p. 398.

Kitpatrick, Early Mapping of Hawaii, not listed. (curiously since it is one of, if not the first map to use the native name 'Hawai'i" for the entire island chain).
