Illustrated by prominent American cartographer Richard Covington, this depiction of Hawaii shows the delineation of Royal and Government lands with Crown lands shown in yellow. Hawaii was still a kingdom in 1881 and would not be annexed as a United States territory until 1898. Covington’s unique aesthetic and technical skill show the island of Oahu in a time before significant periods of immigration and industrial farming would transform the culture and identity of the island.
This era in Hawaii’s rich history saw a transition from a primarily subsistence farming local community to agricultural stakes from Europe and the United States establishing large farms. These farms would produce much of the world’s sugar cane, and pineapples also became a huge economic driver for the islands.
This map was published only a century after the archipelago had been discovered by Captain James Cook, and set off the influx of explorers and traders who used the island as an outpost in the vastness of the Pacific Ocean. Sailing vessels from around the globe started arriving, and the islands became a diverse waypoint between North America and Southeast Asia as well as Japan.
The 1880s were also a period of revolution on the islands with the Rebellion of 1887 sparking a slew of tumultuous clashes until the final Rebellion of 1895 and the ultimate annexation by the United States at the close of the century. This unique piece of cartographical history exemplifies the remoteness of Hawaii and the iconic images that have come to be so familiar.
