Year ca. 1850
Description Map shows the Marquesas islands in the Pacific ocean in French Polynesia, with inset map of the entire Pacific, the islands and a view of the island Nou-Ka-Hiva
The Society Islands in French Polonesia. The archipelago is suspected to have been named by Captain James Cook during his first voyage in 1769, supposedly in honour of the Royal Society, the sponsor of the first British scientific survey of the islands. However, Cook himself stated in his journal that he called the islands Society as they lay contiguous to one another.
