Hawaii. Terreoboo, King of Owhywee, Presents to Captn. Cook. c1780

by Cook, Captain James

TERREOBOO, KING of HAWAII, bringing PRESENTS to CAPTAIN COOK.

Small antique engraving - possibly half a page? Good copperplate engraving on thick paper. Probably published in London circa 1790 (with fine later hand-colour which adds to the appeal of this lovely scene of natives in outrigger canoes, with branch hanging from the top of the masted vessel as a worldwide symbol of peace). Originally published around ten years earlier for the account of the voyages of Captain Cook.

Page size is 125 x 210mm (5 x 8.25 inches).
