Lovely steel-engraved map of the countries surrounding the Baltic Sea. Delineates Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Prussia, and Russia and extends to show St. Petersburg. Five well rendered vignettes of Helsingfors, Abo, St. Petersburg, Kronstadt, and Revel. Map drawn and engraved by John Rapkin, vignettes by H. Winkles.
Good impression and margins. Delicate outline color on map and full later coloring in vignettes. Hint of toning along centerfold. Remnants of hinging tape at top and bottom margins, well away from image.
