This detailed map of western and central Russia extends from Scandinavia and Novaya Zemlya in the north to the Black and Caspian seas in the south. The forests and rivers in the region are prominently featured, including the Volga and Ob Rivers. Numerous place names are also depicted, from large, fortified cities to small towns. The map is adorned with a decorative title cartouche featuring Russian soldiers.
Lovely old color with light soiling. There are numerous notations in old and faded brown ink. Several small tears and cracks have been expertly repaired.
