"Polynesia, Islands in the Pacific Ocean"

Published by John Tallis, 1851

Printed by Lahaina Printsellers, Ltd., 2016

This superb reproduction of the original hand-colored steel plate engraving, "Polynesia, Islands in the Pacific Ocean", was first published by the noted English cartographer, John Tallis, in his Illustrated Atlas and serves as a fine example of mid-19th century pictorial mapmaking. Generally considered to be the last of the great pictorial mapmakers, Tallis's maps are eagerly sought after by collectors.

The map shows the Marquesas, the Society Islands, the Friendly Islands and the New Hebrides, as well as the Sandwich Islands, as they each existed in the mid-1800's. Of particular interest are the classic vignettes of Kalakakooa, Sandwich Islands, Otaheite, Harbour of Dory, New Guinea and Resolution Bay, Marquesas.

We custom-print this facsimile map on waterproof canvas in our Lahaina studio using the finest archival inks, which are tested and guaranteed not to fade or shift under normal circumstances for over 100 years. Modern printing techniques allow us to improve and enhance the historical subject matter, even as we're careful to preserve and maintain its historical and artistic integrity.
