Hawaii Engraving 1826 "The Burning Chasms at Ponahohoa"
From the 1826 book by William Ellis, "Narrative of a Tour through Hawaii, or Owhyhee:...", this print depicts the volcanic activity at Pohahohoa, and is one of eight engravings from this important and rare volume (for more description of this book, see the first map listed in my catalog). Measuring 5 3/8" by 8 1/2" this image shows three men in European dress observing the steam and lava. The print has losses at the bottom where it was attached to the binding, and has stains in the lower left area, all visible in photos, but otherwise is in good condition, and is a nice crisp image with good detail.
