A kama'aina perspective of the 18th to 20th century Hawaiian history through art! "Sam and Mary began to acquire paintings of Hawaii - at first casually, and then with determination - eventually forming a comprehensive collection. Simultaneously, Sam began to judiciously build a collection of printed pictorial matter, books,and atlases, and in pristine condition. Together, these two collections are unsurpassed by any other private collection in the islands" David W. Forbes, author.
