Covering an area spreading between Moscow in the north, the Caucuses in the south, the Black Sea in the east and the Aral Sea in the west, the map is still not enough to display the vast dominions of the Russian Empire in Europe (a second, upper sheet would have been present at printing).
Minute details provide not only information on place names (including a convenient key in the upper right), but transportation routes, geography, historic sites, and much more. The attention to detail is a hallmark of the cartographer, James Wyld, who served as Geographer to the Queen.
