A large scale scientific investigation of the Hawaiian Islands began with the visit of naval commander Chares Wilkes in 1840-41. This map is a marked improvement over previous maps of Hawaii. The coast lines of Mauai and Oahu are more accurate (despite a few flaws) and Wilkes managed to convey a vivid image of the mountainous terrain. Bit of minor foxing.
