Published four years after Guam was ceded to the United States by Spain, the postal map of the Western Pacific includes the Samoan Islands and Hawaii. As global trade increased, the importance of international mail became crucial to the world economy. The United States' interest in the Western Pacific facilitated the need for the establishment of naval outposts across the vast ocean. The Samoan Islands are an archipelago comprised of nearly 1200 miles and are home to one of the largest Polynesian populations. Europeans first made contact with Samoa in the late eighteenth century, and they were dubbed the Navigator Islands and would be until the 1870s as political interest in the area increased.
The area would become one of the central focuses of the American military during World War II as fighting with the Japanese increased in the Pacific Theater. The entire region has been critical to global trade for centuries and bears distinct cultures that retain traditional values and norms influenced by Western culture. British explorer James Cook was the first European to make contact with native Hawaiians in 1778. Hawaii was made an official State in 1959 and is the most recent to join the Union.
This map's distinct aesthetic and technical expertise is particularly notable given the vastness of the region and the difficulty of charting and mapping such a large area. This is an authentic piece of cartographical history with increased significance given its particular creation demonstrating international postal routes as the global economy grew and expanded.
