Book Description Funk & Wagnalls Co, 1897. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. Hawaii. Our New Possessions: An Account of Travels and Adventure, With Sketches of the Scenery, Customs and Manners, Mythology and History of Hawaii to the Present John R. Musick Published by Funk & Wagnalls Co. (1897) John R. Musick's Hawaii. Our New Possessions: An Account of Travels and Adventure, With Sketches of the Scenery, Customs and Manners, Mythology and History of Hawaii to the Present - an extraordinary account of unspoiled, late 19th-century Hawaii. Bound in red, decorated cloth with pictorial cloth binding of surfer to front panel. Includes 56 full-page plates, over 100 half-tone photos, 34 pen sketches and a fold-out map of the Hawaiian Islands, Views of Diamond Head, street scenes, surfers, volcanoes, Queen Liliuokalani and native dress. complete as issued. A crisp copy with bright board cloth and perfect inner hinges. Sharp corners Spine panel slightly faded with no wear to head and tail to head. I believe this is the first printing and has differences to the pictorial cloth binding especially the publishers devise at the foot of the spine, usually in black but this copy in gilt, there is also a difference to the cloud on the front cover design with the surfer. No date on title page. Verso of the title page is dated 1897 not uncommon in other copies. Under the copyright and date is a stamp that I suspect is a customs stamp stating it was printed in the United States possibly making this an early copy (first Printing) that entered Hawaii before the Annexing the Hawaiian Islands to the United States on July 6, 1898 after two previous attempts from 1893 During the height of armed conflicts with the Kingdom of Spain in both the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean, the U.S. Congress passed a joint resolution purporting to annex the Hawaiian Islands on July 6, 1898, and President McKinley signed it into law on the following day. On August 13, 1898, one day after the so-called annexation ceremonies with the self-proclaimed Republic of Hawai'i at Honolulu, the Klondike steamer entered Honolulu Harbor with American troops of the 1st New York Volunteer Infantry and U.S. Volunteer Engineers on board. They were stationed at the first U.S. military post in the Hawaiian Islands called Camp McKinley located below Diamond Head in Waikiki on the Island of O'ahu. This unprovoked incursion by a belligerent State into the territory of a neutral State was a violation of the Laws of War and the Treaties entered between the Hawaiian Kingdom and the United States.
