This is a very scarce regional map prepared for Peter the Great's survey and published by the Geographic Department of the Imperial Academy of Science. It shows the northwestern part of Siberia and the island Novaya Zemlya in the Arctic Ocean. The map provides very fine detail of the rivers and lakes, forests, mountains, moors and settlements. Title is contained in a decorative cartouche.
Original color with some damp stains and short tears in blank margins. Remnants of framing hinges on verso.
