Pub Note: 
The first atlas of Russia, published by the Academy of Sciences in St. Petersburg, expanding on the cartographic work done previously by Ivan K. Kirilov. Postnikov: "It brings together all the geographical discoveries of the early 18th century to give a fuller picture of the entire Empire than shown in the so-called Kirilov atlas. The maps were mostly based on instrumental surveys, geographical descriptions and maps compiled by the Petrine geologists and their successors." Normally the atlas includes 20 maps; this copy is special in adding an additional 17 maps and 2 text pages, including plans of St. Petersburg and Moscow (similar to Phillips 4060). Maps have titles in German, Latin; place names in Russian and Latin alphabet. Text of cartouches in Latin. Also issued in French and in Russian with title Atlas Russicus and Atlas Rossiiskoi. Atlas contains, 7 p. text with descriptions of the maps, and explanation of geographical names and symbols used in German, Russian, French and Latin, a general map of the Russian empire, 13 maps of European Russia at a uniform scale of 1:1,470,000 (35 versts to one inch); and 6 maps of Siberia at a uniform scale of 1:3,444,000 (82 versts to one inch). Bound in at end: 19 additional text and maps of Russian territories, plans from the Russo-Turkish war of 1736, engravings of military fortifications, maps of Ladoga Lake, environs of St. Petersburg, Kronstadt and the Gulf of Finland. Maps are colored in outline, with some maps in full color. Bound in reddish brown contemporary Russian binding in full calf with simple tooling. Atlas was printed in September 1745 in St. Petersburg in Russian, Latin, French and German, with engravers listed as Ellinger, Unversagt, Zubov and Rostovtsev.
