Map of the Crimean peninsula and areas surrounding the Black Sea coast and the Sea of Azov. Accompanying text: "Explanations of the map, as published by the Academy at Petersburgh from the chart sent by the Generals Lacy and Munich, in 1736 and 1737" which essentially describes the different Russian and Turkish encampments.
Detailed plan of St. Petersburg showing fortification constructed at the beginning of the 18th Century by Peter the Great in 1703. Plan details city buildings and outlying regions. The map on the same page shows regions around the city and to the East including the Canal extending the Neva to Wolschowa. The Neva River has a notation "passage for all the outward bound ships, but very difficult on account of its rapidity". The upper map depicts Russian Emperors Palaces & Garden and "a sandy road through the wood and morass".
Map depicts the mythical Northwest Sea Passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific as proposed by early navigators. Includes tracks and notes from the voyages of Bernarda, Tchirikow, de Aguilar, de Fuca, Behring, and various discoveries and dates referenced only as Russian. Many notes on map, such as: "In this Inlet is an island with a Mountain like a Pillar"; "Land seen by M. Spanberg in 1728 non frequently by the Russians who fetch rich furs from it."; "A great Tract of Land discover'd in '722 to which the Tzutzy fled when they were pursued by the Risses who have not yet subduded them."
Looking closely at this map reveals intersting notations used by Dunn to refer to groups of people or geographical features/regions. Some examples include: "Siah Pushes or Black-Clothes People"; "Ruins of Serai". There seem to be very few places named on the map in use today.
