A vibrant Russian-language depiction of 19th-century Asia, this politically oriented map was produced by renowned publisher Friedrich Arnold Brockhaus in Leipzig, around 1890.

This map represents the era's efforts to document, understand, and classify Asia for a popular audience. The late 19th century bore witness to rapid changes in global geography due to European imperialism and the blossoming of popular cartography as a result of technological advancements in printing. The map by Brockhaus, a highly esteemed figure in publishing, epitomizes this period, reflecting the intricacies of the Asian political landscape as understood in the West at that time.
