Description

Excellent Russian-language antique map of Russia, published in the last years of the Russian Empire.

The map was published by the Alexey Iliyn Cartograph Institute, which was named after one of Imperial Russia's great 19th-century cartographers.

The map's color lithography is quite attractive, and the has great detail in Central Asia.

The map can be dated by its use of "Petrograd" rather than "Saint Petersburg", a convention adopted by the Russians to de-Germanize the city after the start of World War I. It carried this name from 1914 until it was renamed Leningrad in 1924.
