The Dole Map of the Hawaiian Islands

DESCRIPTION: Original lithographed pictorial map of the Hawaiian Islands copyrighted by the Hawaiian Pineapple Company Ltd. 1950. Artist Joseph Feher depicted the Hawaiian islands and adjacent waters with boats, fish, and typical objects and pursuits associated with the islands: flying fish, surfing, spear fishing, sailing, poi-making, hula dancers, etc. Islands of the State of Hawaii mentioned in the legend include: Kauai, Niihau, Oahu, Molokai, Lanai, Maui, Kahoolawe, and the big island- Hawaii.

The map is completely original minus the attached text legend at right that is, as in this case, often detached from the print. This is the second of two "Dole Pineapple Maps", the first was published in 1937.
