Carte de Moscovie
Atlas de Geographie. Guillaume Delisle, Quai de Horloge., 1706.. Copper engraving. Original colour. Very good condition, slightly browned margins, some sporadic spotting. Some nicks lower margins. Size: 66 x 50 cm. (26 x 19½ inches) The map is in two parts, north and south, they are both of equal size. The northern map has a decorated cartouche, and shows the north of white Russia, and part of the arctic coast, reaches as far south as the Principality of Galicz. The southern map stretches to the northern tip of the Black Sea, the Volga in the East and a tiny bit of the Baltic Coast in the North West. There are some text on the map about the inhabitants, rivers etc, A very handsome pair of maps. The plates were originally made by Delisle around 1700. Covens and Mortimer reissued them in the Atlas Novissimo (1730-40). Phillipe Buache, de l'Isle's successor, and son in law continued to reissue Delisle's maps in the later eighteenth century. The price is for the pair.
