By far one the most beautiful maps produced by the Homann group. Shows St Petersburg, and surrounding areas around the East side of the gulf of Finland. Decorated with three cartouche’s the massive and stunning top cartouche shows a birds eye view of St. Petersburg, with imperial palaces and buildings seen and ships in the harbor. The lower right cartouche shows Neptune among mermaids and mermen and what may be Venus rising from a oyster a small imperial double headed eagle on the left. The left cartouche shows a grazing stag.
