This is a magnificent, rarer, double-page map of central to southern portions of European Russia -- from the Baltics to the northern reaches of the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea. The Ukraine is included as well. Moscow is prominently displayed. The map is filled with a plathora of detail of the topography, rivers, lakes, and towns, cities and villages. The topography is based on Delisle's map. From Elwe's monumental 'Atlas'.
