Le Isole di Sandwich Original Antique Print
Published in 1798 by Giovanni Maria Cassini in Rome. One of the most coveted and certainly the most decorative maps of Hawaii produced in the 18th century, this rare cartographic gem by Giovanni Maria Cassini is the only map to show the death of Cook in its cartouche. Based on the original charting by Cook and Bligh, Cassini records the tracks of the ‘Resolution’ around the islands.
