Hawaii. Inland View in Atooi (Kauii), Sandwich Islands. Cook c1780

by Cook, Captain James

Antique Print of An INLAND VIEW in ATOOI, One of the Sandwich Islands. A fascinating view of the Hawaiians, their homes and their habits.

Wonderful original copperplate engraving by J.G. Wooding for the publication of the Voyages of Captain Cook. This engraving was for the larger edition published in London by Alexander Hogg circa 1784 as A new, authentic, and complete collection of voyages round the world, undertaken by order of His present Majesty, for making new discoveries in geography, navigation, astronomy, &c. in the Southern and Northern Hemispheres, &c., &c., &c.

Page measures 235 x 380mm (approximately 9.25 x 15 inches). There is the usual slight damage and soiling to the edges of this very old page, with small remnants of early cellotape repairs and reinforcement. Unfortunately the left side of this engraving was clipped for publication. (Please ask if you would like further scans of the edges.. )
