This is an excellent map of the area surrounding much of the central portion of the Caspian Sea.  Shown are parts of Azerbaijan with Baku (Bacau) identified, Russia, Turkey, Kazakhstan and  Turkmenistan.  A fine view of the city of Baku (the former Tereki) is inset in a decorative cartouche at upper right.   A variety of ships sail the Sea.  The sheet is further embellished in Homann's bold style with a large title cartouche that features a nomadic encampment with colorful figures, a camel and horsemen, and a vine-draped distance scale cartouche.
