One of the Earliest Modern Maps of Russia

Striking map of Russia, based upon Anthony Jenkinson's rare map of Russia drawn in 1562.

The map covers the region from the Gulf of Finland, Lithuania and the Black Sea to the Sur River, Tashkent, the Kossack Regions, Colmack, etc. From Ortelius' Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, the first modern atlas. The map was engraved by Franz Hogenberg from an original by Anthony Jenkinson of the English Muscovy Company drawn in 1562. Jenkinson travelled to Bukhara in 1557-59 and to Russia three more times thereafter, but into Asia (as far as Persia) during only one of these trips. The vignettes are based upon Marco Polo's travels, and include over a dozen indigenous and mythical scenes, costumed locals and animals.

Van Den Broecke 162.
