This large and remarkably detailed map covers the region from the Gulf of Finland and St. Petersburg east to the Ural Mountains, here called the Monts Payas. Riga in Poland is located and Moscow is shown in the extreme south within the map's border. Most of Finland and northwestern Russia is included. Details include mountains, rivers, forests and scores of place names. The large decorative title cartouche fills the upper left corner.
