Great Tartary, with the Tract of Moscovite Ambassador's Travels from Moscow to Pekin in China. Above 4600 Eng. Mi.
An amazing engraving showing the vast mysterious swath that was northern and central Asia. Targeted on the map is the route of an Russian envoy that traveled across Siberia, Tibet and northern China to finally reach Peking. Does note the "Wall of China built above 200 years before the Incarnation", which here is shown reaching to the desert of "Xamo". Includes a fascinating notation for the nomads of what is modern Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan. A crisp engraving.
Condition is very good. Image size 8 x 10.5 (inches).
