This superb sea chart shows the mouth of the Dvina River on the White Sea and the chief seaport of Archangel. It is oriented with north to the left by a nice compass rose. The map is dominated by the large illustration that fills the large island in the delta showing several Russian men along with their tamed reindeer and bears.
A couple minor edge tears at bottom have been professionally repaired.
