Handsome map showing the extent of the Russian Empire in Europe. The political divisions are delineated and the forested areas are graphically shown. The map is based on the work of Sanson. Cherubs hang from the drape-style title cartouche. Latin title in top border, "Russiae Albae sive Moscoviae delineatio Geographica accurata et nova…"
Nice impression and original color. Some soil and toning in blank margins with a few stray spots of foxing in map. Bottom fold split just entering border, repaired on verso.
