"Na Mokupuni O Hawaii Nei"

Published by Lahainaluna Seminary Press, 1837

Printed by Lahaina Printsellers, Ltd., 2015

This superior reproduction was engraved and drawn by Samuel P. Kalama, a student engraver at the Lahainaluna Mission School on Maui. It's of note because it was the first separate map of the Hawaiian Islands which was actually published in Hawaii.

Kalama also made the larger and extremely rare 1838 Map of the Hawaiian Islands, of which only two copies are known to exist.

This 1837 map probably served as a prototype for the 1838 version. His was the most detailed map yet published and showed many Hawaiian place names unfamiliar to both Cook and Vancouver, and not appearing on their maps.

Kalama went on to become one of the best surveyors in the islands.

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.
