RARE ANTIQUE MAPS OF PACIFIC OCEAN FOR SALE
PUBLISHED 1579, 1611 AND 1776.
The most important map pertaining to Hawaii is the 1579 map of Abraham Ortelius where Hawaii is shown on the map as “Los Bolcanos”. The title of this map is “INDIAE ORIENTALIS INSULARUMQVE ADIACIENTI VM TYPVS. Theatrum Orbis Terrarum (Theater of the World) first published in 1570. This Plate number 84 is from the 1579 publication. It is thought that Captain Cook might have carried a copy of this map with him on his third Pacific voyage. I have seen two other copies of this map but they were not hand colored. It is possible that information for this map is partially based on the voyage of Ruy Lopez de Villalobos.(c1542) both of which most likely passed through the Hawaiian Islands. This map was printed two hundred years prior to the voyage of Captain Cook to Hawaii. Page size is 57.5 cm x 45.1 cm. Plate mark size is 50.1 cm x 35 cm. Map is believed to be hand colored from the period. Very fine condition, light foxing. Price for this map is $18,800
