"Plan de la Rade de Raheina"

Published by Luis Isadore Duperrey, 1819

Printed by Lahaina Printsellers, Ltd., 2016

This coastal charting of Lahaina, Maui, "Plan de la Rade de Raheina", is of primary importance as it shows the location of the home sites during that pivotal year when the final kapus (the ancient Hawaiian system of laws) were overturned by Queen Kaahumanu and Kamehameha II and the islands embraced Christianity

This superb reproduction of the original copperplate engraving was illustrated by Luis Isadore Duperrey, Chief Hydrographic Surveyor aboard the French vessel l'Uranie circa 1817-1820. The Uranie was the first major European ship to arrive in Hawaii after the death of Kamehameha I.

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.
