Description:

Rare lithographic panorama of Honolulu on two sheets, from the official account by Abel du Petit-Thouars, Voyage Autour du Monde sur La Venus 1836-1839.

The Venus had anchored off Honolulu on 8th July, 1837 having sailed from Calao to check on the existence of the island of St Paul, shown on some old charts which Dupetit-Thouars decided did not exist. At Honolulu, like other visiting French, he became immediately embroiled in the missionary controversy. The French stayed in the Hawaiian Islands for two weeks before setting sail for the ‘Kruzenstern Reef’
From Abel du Petit-Thouars., Voyage autour du monde sur la fregate Venus.
