Engraved at Lahainaluna: A History of Printmaking by Hawaiians at the Lahainaluna Seminary, 1834-1844
Author: Forbes, David W.;

Between 1834 and 1844, aremarkable collection of copperplate engravings issued forth from theLahainaluna Seminary, a school on the island of Maui run by the HawaiianMission. Collectively, these engravings—views of the Hawaiian Islands,including towns and rural settlements, portraits, objects of natural history,and original maps and charts—form one of the most important visual records ofnineteenth-century Hawaii before the age of photography.

Although most of thedrawings on which the engravings are based were done by members of the HawaiianMission, the actual engravings are all the work of young Hawaiians, many ofthem students at the Lahainaluna Seminary. This is the first study of the entirebody of engraved work produced by Hawaiians at Lahainaluna Seminary andincludes biographical information on the young engravers.
