This is a magnificent, rarer, double-page map of central to northern portions of European Russia -- from Finland to just beyond the Petzora River. The map is filled with a plathora of detail of the topography, rivers, lakes, and towns, cities and villages. It is decorated with a nice title cartouche featuring putti and a variety of scientific instruments. Based on Delisle's map. From Elwe's monumental 'Atlas'.
