  Carte de Moscovie Dressée Par Guillaume De l'Isle de l'Academie Royales des Sciences. 

Description: Striking and hightly detailed copper engraved 1706 De l'Isle's chart of Russia and the Ukraine. When this map was issued it was by far the most sophisticated map of Russia and the Ukraine yet published and served as a model for most subsequent maps of the region for the next century. Centered on Moscow, De L'Isle's map covers from the Barentz Sea and the White Sea south as far as the Sea of Azov in the Ukraine, and from Poland and Lithuania east as far as Astrakhan and the Samoyedes and the Volga River. Like most of De L'Isle's work, is beautifully engraved with nomadic tents, forests and mountains rendered in profile and swamps, oceanic, and river depths in hachure. Russia at this time was dominated by Tzar Peter I, also known as Peter the Great. Under Peter the Great's influence Russia would, in 1721, be proclaimed and Empire and be recognized as a major world power. This map was issued both independently and in numerous atlases issued by De L'Isle and his successors throughout the 18th century. Lower sheet of a map of Russian Empire printed in two sheets.
Date: 1706 ( undated ).
Dimension: Paper size approx.: cm 77,2 x 54,2
Condition: Very strong and dark impression on very strong paper. Paper with chains and wiremarks. Outlines original colors. Wide margins. Small foxing and browning. Small waterstains. Small tears. Map folded as issued. Conditions are as you can see in the image.
Cartographer: The De L'Isle family (fl. c. 1700 - c. 1760) (also written Delisle) were, in composite, a mapmaking tour de force who redefined early 18th century European cartography. Claude De L'Isle (1644 -1720), the family patriarch, was a minor geographer and historian based in Paris. His four sons, Guillaume (1675- 1726), Simon Claude (1675 - 1726), Joseph Nicholas (1688 - 1768) and Louis (1720 - 1745) each made an important contribution to cartography. Without a doubt Guillaume was the most remarkable member of the family. It is said that Guillaume's skill as a cartographer was so prodigious that he drew his first map at just nine years of age. He was tutored by J. D. Cassini in astronomy, science, mathematics and cartography. By applying these diverse disciplines to the vast stores of information provided by 18th century navigators, Guillaume created the technique that came to be known as "scientific cartography". This revolutionary approach transformed the field of cartography and created a more accurate picture of the world. Among Guillaume's many firsts are the first naming of Texas, the first correct map of the Mississippi, the final rejection of the "insular California fallacy", and the first identification of the correct longitudes of America. Stylistically De L'Isle also initiated important changes to the medium, eschewing the flamboyant Dutch style of the previous century in favor of a highly detailed decorative approach that yielded map both beautiful and informative. Guillaume was elected to the French Academie Royale des Sciences at 27. Later, in 1718, he was also appointed "Premier Geographe du Roi", an office created especially for him. De L'Isle personally financed the publication of most of his maps, hoping to make heavy royalties on their sales. Unfortunately he met an untimely death in 1728, leaving considerable debt and an impoverished child and widow. De L'Isle's publishing firm was taken over by his assistant, Phillipe Buache who became, posthumously, his son in law. The other De L'Isle brothers, Joseph Nicholas and Louis De L'Isle, were employed in the Service of Peter the Great of Russia as astronomers and surveyors. They are responsible for cataloguing and compiling the data obtained from Russian expeditions in the Pacific and along the northwest coast of America, including the seminal explorations of Vitus Bering and Aleksei Chirikov.
