Title : Maris Caspii Littori occidentali inter Fluviorum Wolgae et Kur Ostia adiacentium Terrarum Provintiarum et Locorum eorumque Incolarum. . ..
Map maker : IMPERIAL ACADEMY OF SCIENCES / L'ISLE, Joseph Nico.
Date : Petersburg, after 1733.
Size : 20.3 x 15.6 inches. / 51.5 x 39.5 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured.

Description :Detailed and rare Showing Caspian Sea between the western shore of the rivers Kur and the Volga, and adjoining provinces. Title in Russian. Text in Latin and German. Elaborate cartouche on lower left corner, with four figures representing different peoples of the Caucasus.
After the fall of the Persian Safavid dynasty in 1722 both the Russians and Ottomans invaded Azerbaijan, but it was the Russians who captured Baku. The treaty of Constantinople, June 1724, fixed the borders between Russian and Ottoman control (as shown on this map), giving the Russians a corridor to Baku. However the Russians had to withdraw in 1735.

The map was prepared by Captain Johann-Gustav Gerber, who as early as 1722, began to survey the Caspian west coast.. In 1733, he finally submitted his map to the Akademiya nauk. The latter had it engraved and in 1735 it was ready - the first map relating to Russia published by the Akademiya nauk. It was printed in both Russian and Latin editions, the latter in two hundred copies".
Joseph Nicolas De L’Isle used the map to include it as a supplement in his "Atlas Russicus". Here a separate publication. It is unknown why the map is dated 1728.
The Russian Academy of Sciences was created in 1724 in St Petersburg. It was not only intended to coordinate and produce science but also to aid in solutions to practical problems. Many foreign scientists were invited to participate.
Joseph Nicolas de l' Isle was invited to head the department of geography and came in 1726. The making of the first atlas Russicus , not surprisingly considering the size of the country, took a long time. New bearings in trigonometry had to be taken all over the country. Existing cartographic material had to be obtained and analyzed.
The atlas was prepared by Joseph Nicolas de L'Isle.
Among the Russian scientists that worked on the atlas was Kirilow, the man who published the first map of Russia in 1734. ¤

Condition : Dissected and laid on linen. Library stamp and number on reverse. Very good. Dark impression.
