Wonderful oversize mid 19th century engraved map with original hand color. Includes an incredible amount of detail, with countless place names, mountains, rivers, roads, cities and other landmarks mentioned.
Includes nice inset of the region surrounding St. Petersburg at upper right.
In VG+, mostly clean condition. Very scattered toning to some margins, but otherwise remaining clean and quite well-preserved overall.
A very uncommon map!
