Title : Charte der Kriegs Operationen am Donn und Dnieper. Ihro Russisch Key Serl: Maiesty: gloriousen Armeen A 1736. . ..
Map maker : ACADEMY OF SCIENCES.
Date : St. Petersburg, c. 1736-1737.
Size : 15.2 x 18.1 inches. / 38.5 x 46.0 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured.

Description :Very rare map of the southern part of Ukraine, with an explanatory key A-N in lower right. One of five maps (see also Atlas Ukrainae et Ponti Euxini, 41 - 44) published by Academy of Sciences in Saint Petersburg for use by Russian army during Russian-Turkish war started in 1735.
Bagrow thinks they are based on some French maps. All these maps are huge step back comparing with Beauplan. When the maps have been send for review to the front line, one of the officers replied: "Maps are totally erroneous and have nothing to do with real topography and distances, and therefore any improvement is impossible".
Unfortunately publishers in Western Europe have not seen this review, and the maps were widely copied in Germany and Netherlands for about next thirty years.
Condition : Very good condition, minor paper loss on right edge.
