CASSINI, Giovanni Maria. [Scarce 18th century map of Hawaii after James Cook]
Le Isole di Sandwich Delineate sulle Osservazioni Del Cap. Cook. Rome, 1798. Original colour. 360 x 500mm. An excellent example
The Sandwich Islands, with Cook's route around the islands marked. The map features a decorative vignette, showing Cook struggling with fierce Hawaiian natives, while another prepared to stab him in the back, with Cook's ship at anchor in the background. Issued in the scarce atlas, the 'Nuovo atlante geografico universale'. Undoubtedly this is the most decorative and sought after of all Hawaiian maps and the only decorative map based upon Cook's voyage to Hawaii.
