This fantastic map displays the Gulf of Finland, from the southern coast of Finland as far west as Åbo (Turku), eastward to St. Petersburg, Russia, and then westward across the north coast of Estonia as far as the island of Hiiumaa (Dagö). Also included is the western side of Lake Ladoga. The map shows many inland towns and roadways and displays the region after the first partition but before the second of 1795.
Condition: Excellent condition showing a strong impression, original color and wide margins all around. Some discoloration is noticeable along the top centerfold and slightly to the left.
