Superb map depicting the theatre of the Russo-Turkish War in the Ukraine in 1735-39. It provides excellent detail of the fortifications including the Ukrainian line - a system of defenses from the Dnipro to the Donetz rivers. Richly adorned in Seutter's bold style with two cartouches and a compass rose.
Beautiful impression and original color on thick, hand laid paper with full margins. Centerfold toned, scattered foxing or toning. A couple marginal damp stains just touching neatline. Short tear in lower margin repaired with archival tape.
