Title : General karte vom europaischen Russland..
Map maker : WEILAND, C. F..
Date : Weimar, Geographisches Institut, 1840.
Size : 42.1 x 34.3 inches. / 107.0 x 87.0 cm.
Colouring : In original o/l colours.

Description :Rare second edition of a lithographed wall map of the European part of the Russian empire, at a scale of about 1:3,200,000. With the title in a elaborately decorated lettering above left, an inset plan of St. Petersburg ("Grundriss von St. Petersburg gezeichnet von A. Roetsch 1835"), a key to the numbers 1-53 (main buildings) and a-c (main squares), a key to the symbols and colours, and two scales. Lithographed by H. Klöpfel.

The first edition appeared in 1835, and a third in 1844. It shows the roads and waterways in great detail, the smallest towns or villages shown have a population of less than 5000, and mountains are also indicated. Weiland was a very active cartographer for the Geographical Institute in Weimar, a leading German map firm that set quality standards through much of the nineteenth century. Coloured in outline as published to indicate the six regions noted in the key.
The colouring used for the border has browned it, and also offset to make two slightly browned patches in the map image. Otherwise a very good copy. An interesting and unusual map of the western part of the Russian empire.
