This attractive and colorful large map features the island of Kauai, Hawaii. Published in 1903, it represents the culmination and results of the first systematic and scientific survey of the island, which took place in the 1870s under the Hawaiian Monarchy. It focuses on Kauai’s potential for development of its natural resources.
The map is highly detailed topographically, conveying a wealth of information concerning pineapple and sugar plantations, forest lands and reserves, grazing lands and wetlands, public lands and homestead settlement plots. Topographic details which would enhance administration of these lands are also well defined.
A color coded legend enables identification of public lands, homestead settlement tracts, approximate area of grazing lands, approximate area of sugar plantations, forest reserves, approximate area of forest lands not in reserves, approximate area of wet lands, along with schools and post offices.
Condition: This map is in A condition, published folding, now backed with linen for preservation and presentation purposes. There is very slight soiling at some folds, and minimal separation at crease corners, all reinforced by the backing.
