This detailed copper engraved map of northern Russia is divided into twenty-two provinces based on Delisle's cartography. It focuses on the region south of the White Sea and includes St. Petersburg, Arkhangelsk, and Vologda. The map is filled with countless place names, rivers, roads and forests, and features a decorative title cartouche containing images of wildlife, hunters, and a sleigh.
A nice impression with original color, light soiling, a centerfold separation that enters 1" into map image at bottom, and a couple tiny holes.
