Excellent detail throughout the region. Extends to include all of Russia and Siberia, and south to include Korea, Japan, and Taiwan, the Caspian and Black Seas, etc. Alternately titled in French "Carte generale d'Empire de Russie det de Tartarie grande et petite en Europe et Asia." Three cartouches with modern color. A nice sheet that locates Pekin and some of the Great Wall.
Good impression on full sheet with good margins. Later color has a little bleed-through to verso.
