Rand McNally 1899 Hawaii
"Map of Hawaii." From Atlas Of The World. Chicago: Rand, McNally & Co., 1899. 9 1/2 x 12 1/2. Color cerograph. Very good condition.

The end of the nineteenth century was a traumatic time for Hawaii. In 1893, Queen Liliuokalani was forced to surrender her kingdom to the United States, which officially annexed the island nation in 1898 and became a U.S. territory in 1900. This map shows Hawaii just after it was annexed and so it would have been of considerable interest to the Rand, McNally & Co. audience. This firm is one of only two surviving large map companies from the nineteenth century (the other being the Cram Company), and it has a very long history in portraying America in maps. The map is up-to-date and detailed and its quality and precision harkens more to the maps of forthcoming century than to those of the old. $90

Rand McNally 1910 Hawaii
"Hawaii." From Rand-McNally & Company's Indexed Atlas of the World. Chicago: Rand, McNally & Co., ca. 1910. 18 3/4 x 25 3/4. Color cerograph. Very good condition.

An early twentieth century map from the Rand, McNally & Co. firm out of Chicago, a company that would shift the center of cartographic publishing from the east coast to the mid-west. Typical of the firm's work, this map has very good detail precisely and neatly exhibited. Topographic and social information, counties, roads, and many more details are neatly illustrated. Also of note, all four railroad lines in the state are indicated in red along with a numbered index. Aesthetically and cartographically, it epitomizes the Rand McNally maps of the twentieth century. $125
