A detailed chart of Hawaii marking Vancouver's passages through the archipelago during his four-year expedition to map the Pacific. Insets show Cocos Island and parts of Isabela and Fernandina, two islands of the Galapagos chain that he observed during a hurried transit in 1795. This was the largest chart of Hawaii published before the 19th century and was originally an illustration to a French edition of Vancouver's account. This example, with the overprinted number top right, would have been a separate-issue chart.
