Scarce, large-scale chart of the Hawaiian Islands showing Vancouver's tracks in 1792-94. George Vancouver first visited these islands as a young officer under Captain James Cook. Then between 1791-1795 he completed a round the world voyage commanding two ships, the Discovery and the Chatham. The chart also includes insets of the Gallapagos Islands and Cocos Islands.
