A map of Honolulu and the Sandwich Islands, which we now call the Hawaiian Islands

MacLeod, Alexander Samuel

New York

Henry M. Snyder



Color pictorial map. 68x89 cm (26¾x35"), shrink-wrapped.

Marvelous and quite rare map of Honolulu with inset of the Hawaiian Islands, with pictorial features on the map and in vignettes surrounding the map, and the declaration, "In this map you will find depicted in pictorial fashion the history, landmarks & customs of these colorful isles." Alexander Samuel MacLeod, the Canadian-born artist who designed the map, trained at the California School of Design under Frank Van Sloun. In 1921, MacLeod arrived in Hawaii, where he worked in the art departments of the magazine Paradise of the Pacific and the local papers, The Honolulu Advertiser and the Honolulu Star-Bulletin. He is best known for his Hawaiian landscapes and sympathetic representations of rural Hawaii's native population. OCLC/WorldCat lists only two examples of this map, at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee, and the Boston Public Library.

Due to the size and/or weight of this lot extra shipping and/or handling charges may apply.
