This is a fine print reproduction of an attractive and colorful large map of the island of Kauai, Hawaii. Originally published in 1903, the map 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.

What can be referred to as modern cartography has been around for over 550 years. Throughout that time an enormous amount of new land was discovered, cities were founded while others perished. International trade and travel became the norm, political borders were ever-changing, and numerous wars were waged. With all that being said, hundreds of thousands of maps were created that show such events and episodes in time.
