This uncommon, small map covers the European part of Russia with the Duchy of Moscow and White Russian Empire. The map extends west to the Gulf of Finland and south to the Black and Caspian Seas. For his Nouvel Atlas, Leth made close copies of Jacques Chiquet's maps published in Le Nouveau et Curieux Atlas in 1719.
