This is the 1885 edition updated by John M. Donn to 1903. It's difficult to image a more detailed map of the island: topography, watershed, villages, land grants, coastal detail, property owners, it's all here. Areas are noted as to the best agricultural usage. A huge and fascinating map on one of the most beautiful islands on earth.
