Description

Detailed map of the Pacific, centered on Hawaii, from an early edition of Tanner's New Universal Atlas.

Marvelous treatment of the region, from Russian America to Patagonia and from New Zealand and Australia to the Sea of Kamtschatka and the Aleutian Archipelago. This map is from an early edition of Tanner's New Universal Atlas, first issued in 1834. The Atlas would become the most popular American Atlas between 1834 and 1860, published annually, first by Tanner and later by Mitchell, Cowperthwait, and DeSilver.
