Description

Fine separately issued example of JN De L'Isle's map extending from Moscow to the Ukraine, from the Atlas Russicus (Atlas Rossiiskoi).

The first atlas of Russia, published by the Academy of Sciences in St. Petersburg, expanding on the cartographic work done previously by Ivan K. Kirilov.

Postnikov notes

It brings together all the geographical discoveries of the early 18th century to give a fuller picture of the entire Empire than shown in the so-called Kirilov atlas. The maps were mostly based on instrumental surveys, geographical descriptions and maps compiled by the Petrine geologists and their successors.
