One of the First World Maps to Show Hawaii

Double hemisphere map of the world, featuring extensive table and text below, published by Homann Heirs.

An early World map to locate Hawaii, the map includes the tracks of Goree's voyage in 1780, Clerke's Voyage in 1779, and Cook's voyage in 1777-78.

The coastlines of New Zealand and Australia are shown, albeit quite inaccurately so. The Northwest Coast of America is also unusual, pre-dating La Perouse and Vancouver, among others.

Homann Heirs was a German publishing firm that enjoyed a major place in the European map market throughout the eighteenth century. Founded in 1702 by Johann Baptist Homann, the business passed to his son, Christoph, upon Johann’s death in 1724. Christoph died in 1730, aged only 27, and the firm was inherited by subsequent Homann heirs. This altered the name of the company, which was known as Homann Erben, or Homann heirs. The firm continued in business until 1848.
