This is a grand map of the Russian Empire extending from Finland to Siberia and Tartary. "Ukraine Pays des Cosaques" is noted north of Crimea within the region of Moscovie Europeane. Novaya Zemlya is shown connected to the mainland. Just below the Arctic Circle, Witsen's mountainous peninsula is shown with an unknown eastern coastline. The eastern coastline, with Terre d' Eso d'Yeco, is depicted via faint engraved lines and there is no Kamchatka Peninsula. The map is flanked by panels of French text with historical notes, the provincial coats-of-arms, and six medallions. Printed on two joined sheets, as issued.
A nice impression on a sheet with a Strasbourg bend and lily watermark. There is light extraneous creasing and dampstains along the left edge of the sheet.
