Quartorze Ans aux Iles Sandwich.

Paris: Libraire Hachette & Cie. 1874.

Two parts in one volume, two folding engraved maps; original yellow wrappers preserved in a neat French binding of half dark green morocco.

By a close associate of Kamehameha V

Good account of Hawaiian royal affairs by a French consular official who arrived on the islands in 1855. The author stayed for 14 years and travelled widely during this time, often with King Kamehameha V, including the relief mission following the devastating earthquake and tsunami of 1868. The book was translated in 1981, and is now considered an excellent source for Hawaiian history of the period.
