This handsome map covers the eastern part of Tartary with part of present-day Manchuria and Sakhalin Island. The map was based primarily on Jesuit and English sources and is particularly detailed with regard to the river systems. Features a lovely decorative cartouche.
A hint of offsetting and faint toning along the centerfold.
