    This map covers the southwestern part of the Russian Empire bordering the Caucasus. The cities of Moscow, Smolensk, Vologda, Nizhniy Novgorod, and Azov are depicted with miniature castles, and smaller towns are shown along the river systems in the region. The map is elaborately embellished with richly dressed people and wild animals flanking three cartouches. The title cartouche credits the map to Isaac Massa, who visited Moscow in the early 1600s. The Blaeu imprint is at bottom, just left of centerfold. Latin text on verso.
