Description

Interesting and scarce map of old Estonia (the old Duchy of Estonia, or Ehstland in German), stretching from the St. Petersburg Government in the east to Hiiumaa Island in the west. To the south of the map is "Livland", which is today part of modern Estonia. This differentiation dating back to the historic borders between Swedish Livonia and Swedish Estonia and earlier incarnations.

The map was published in Riga for Baltic Germans who resided in Estonia when it was part of the Russian Empire.

Talin is labeled "Reval" on the map, as was the convention at the time.
