Lot 325: Last reigning monarch of the Hawaiian islands (1838–1917) who actively pursued the preservation of the islands for their native residents. In 1898, Liliuokalani was forced to give up her throne when Hawaii was annexed to the United States. Partly-printed DS, signed "Liliuokalani P. R.," three pages on two adjoining sheets, 10 x 16, June 14, 1881. Royal land grant to Keohokalole for a parcel of land in the district of Kaawaloa. Signed at the conclusion by Liliuokalani as princess regent and countersigned by Henry A. P. Carter. The green seal affixed to the lower left remains fully intact. In fine condition, with expected document wear. A century earlier Captain James Cook landed at the village of Kaawaloa during his third voyage; it was also the site of his murder shortly thereafter. Liliuokalani is a very rare autograph, especially as princess regent. RR Auction's Fine Autographs and Artifacts Auction 467 Wednesday, 13th January 2016 Estimate: $1000-2000
