"Sandwich Isles"

Published by Johann Von Krusenstern, 1827

Printed by Lahaina Printsellers, Ltd., 2016

Admiral Johan (Ivan) von Krusenstern, who visited the Hawaiian Islands in 1804, published this superlatively-rare map with Russian text in 1826.

The rarity of the map is demonstrated by the fact that Gary Fitzpatrick, in writing his book The Early Mapping Of Hawaii, could only secure a later French edition to show.

It is believed that a copy of this map accompanied Charles Wilkes (of the U.S. Exploring Expedition) on his visit to Hawaii and was influential in Wilkes's charting of the islands.

This splendid map is also noteworthy because of the inset depicting Kotzebue's first charting of Honolulu harbor.

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.
