Handsome and boldly engraved plan of the city centered on the Kremlin names all major streets, many public places and buildings and details many fortified areas. The map is enhanced by the beautiful vignette of the Church of the Assumptions in the Kremlin and another large view of the city from Sparrow Hill. Drawn by W.B. Clarke, engraved by B.R. Davies and published by Baldwin & Cradock. Additional title in Cyrillic Russian.
A stunning example that is near fine less a little marginal toning and some binding glue remnants at upper edge. Thick paper and wide margins.
