Description :Very large map of the Russian Empire by Vaugondy, dated 1753. It stretches across the full extent of the Russia from Finland to Kamchatka.
There is a stunning title cartouche flanked by bears and wind heads, surmounted by the two-headed Imperial Eagle. The table in the top right corner uses Russian and Tatar terms. Some areas of the map show coasts that have not been fully mapped (Novaya Zemlya) and the mythical "Jedso" and "Terre De Compagnie" appear.

An interesting map, very detailed with many cities, towns and provincial boundaries. Showing inclusion of Riga and Smolensk near western border In NW, Kiev on western border in the Southwest, Crimea and Dagestan in the South, Partial inclusion of what was then Circassia and Astrakhan, and prior to Russian territorial claims in the Caucasus.
The Far East has a southern border far north of the present day border. This large format, continuous map was one of the only complete maps of Russia available during the middle of the 18th century. The map is scarce - Worldcat shows only four institutional locations.

Gilles Robert de Vaugondy (1688–1766), also known as Le Sieur or Monsieur Robert, and his son, Didier Robert de Vaugondy (1723–1786), were leading cartographers in France during the 18th century.
In 1757, Gilles and Didier Robert De Vaugondy published “The Atlas Universel”, one of the most important atlases of the 18th century. ¤
Condition : In very good condition with two original folds remaining. Two maps have been joined horizontally. On hand-made paper.
