Russian Maps

 

This map was issued in about 1908, I believe, and is an excellent rendition of the regions and cities/towns of Russia west of the Ural mountains at that time.  It is particularly helpful for tracking down zemstvo localities.  This is the best map that I have found so far, and, as you can see, is stitched together from two separate pages in the map book.  There is a little bit missing in the middle, and I've tried to fill it in with neutral color so it isn't so offensive.  :)

Danger - the larger image is 3.2MB in size.

Note also that if you want an even larger image still, the "master" image that I have in photoshop format is 50% larger than the large download, and I can make this available to you with less compression as well (the raw psd file is 60MB!).
