(Manuscript Map of the Russia-Finland Border North of St. Petersburg) КАРТА ЧАСТИ ФИНЛЯНДИИ.

Imperial Russian Manuscript Map of the Russia-Finland Border, circa 1810. Pavlovsk Palace Library Provenance.

Large Imperial Russian manuscript map of the Russia-Finland border as it existed between 1743 and 1812. The Russian side of the border comprises the "Old Finland" region which was incorporated in the Grand Duchy of Finland in 1812, as an internal arrangement in the Russian Empire. The present map was almost certainly prepared for the Imperial command structure in the lead up to that reorganization, as such, it represents an important cartographic document in the development of the Finish and Russian borders.

The lower boundary of the map tracks on a line stretching roughly between Borgov (Porvoo, Finland), Luiza (Loviisa, Finland), Vyborg, and Kexholm (Priozersk), and Salmi. Lake Ladoga and the Gulf of Finland represent a large portion of the southern half of the map.

An early manuscript note on the verso says "Russian Finland" in Russian.

Provenance

Canceled label of Pavlovsk Palace Library; canceled ink stamp of Pavlovsk Palace Museum, Library of Russia.

Pavlovsk Palace is an 18th-century Russian Imperial residence built by the order of Catherine the Great for her son, Grand Duke Paul, in Pavlovsk, within Saint Petersburg. After his death, it became the home of his widow, Maria Feodorovna.
