This map of the Russian Empire focuses on the extensive river systems. Towns, political boundaries, and mountain ranges are also shown. Each sheet stands alone with a title cartouche and full borders, however the decorative surround of the title cartouches stretches across both sheets.
Contemporary color on watermarked sheets with light soiling, several small stains, and light toning along the centerfold and edges of the sheet. The first image is a composite image - the map is on two separate sheets.
