Were the Hawaiian Islands Visited by the Spaniards Before Their Discovery by Captain Cook in 1778?

by Dahlgren, Erik W

Condition: Near Fine/with, as issued, no


4to. Pp. 220, [6] folded leaves of plates. Maps, in b&w and color. With 27 maps, most fold-out. Bound in 3/4 tan leather over marble-esqued boards. Black morocco title label on spine. Marbled edges. With original wrappers bound in. Ownership name on front cover of wrapper. Some slight wear to extremities of leather binding, with hinges starting, else in lovely condition. Dahlgren (d. 1934), Chief Librarian at the Royal Library in Stockholm, was a serious historian, as evidenced by this competent debunking of the long-held apocrypha that the Spanish, ever-sensitive of revealing their discoveries, had charted the Hawaiian Islands before Cook. A significant acheivement.
