Description :Highly detailed rare map covering the area of the Oryol Oblast in Russia, south of Moscow.
The map is a result of a new survey of Russia done in the first years of the reign of Catherine the Great (from 1762) by the Geographical Department of the Academy of Science in St. Petersburg. The survey was done by Johann Treskot (1719-1786) and Johann Schmidt (1732-1786) until the mid 1770s.

“By January 1763, Schmidt had 9 large maps ready in manuscript form—most of them in the Baltic countries while one, prepared by Truskot, was devoted Siberia" (Bagrow, L. Russian Cartography to 1800 p. 202). The new map of Russia was published in 1776 in 23 sheets. Treskot’s and Schmidt’s survey was highly influential on the contemporary cartography of Russia. Their maps were copied in the next decade in Russia and in Europe. Today the original maps by Treskot and Schmidt are rare. ¤

Soft folds with a pin size hole in the middle, otherwise in a good condition. On verso some manuscript in the lower white margin..
