View of Nagasaki Harbour, with on foreground Japanese junks bringing the members of the first Russian expedition a shore. In the back ground the artificial island of Dejima.
German title preceded by the title in Russian characters. Copper engraving after Tilesius.
Taken from the atlas volume from the extremely rare and only Russian edition of the first Russian circumnavigation under the command of Adam Johann von KRUSENSTERN. An elegantly engraved work published by the Imperial Command on heavy paper.

The expedition set off from Kronstadt in August 1803 aboard two English vessels purchased for the voyage. Traveling via Cape Horn and visiting the Sandwich Islands, Kamchatka and Japan, they eventually returned to the same port, via the Cape of Good Hope, in August 1806. The expedition constituted the first ever Russian voyage round the world, and the published work included much of value, particularly about Japan. Krusenstern's most important practical achievement was the establishment of diplomatic and commercial relations between Russia and Japan.

The Dutch V.O.C. trading post on Deshima on the right, marked with a flag.
Nagasaki was the port city of the Hizen Province (now Nagasaki Prefecture), and after 1570 began to prosper from the trade with Portugal. The government imposed a policy of seclusion on Japan in the early 17th century and since Nagasaki became the only port open to foreign trade. All the Dutch traders moved their commercial houses their in 1641.
The piece of fan shaped land that juts out into Nagasaki Bay, attached to the shore by a bridge is the island of Dejima.
