Original map printed in the year 1739 in Nuremberg, Germany, titled in cartouche at upper left "Imperii Russici et Tartariae Universiae", published by the heirs of important cartographer Johann Baptiste Homanns. The attractive map shows most of Asia from the Baltic Sea to the Pacific Ocean, and from the Arctic Ocean to India, including the Korean peninsula, Japan, and Taiwan. The map measures 20" by 22 1/2" inside the mat and 25 1/2" by 28" as framed. Condition is excellent. I see at least one example of this map offered online at $900.
