Bowen, Emanuel





Copper-engraved map, with hand-colored pictorial cartouche (coloring likely later). 17.8x32 cm (7x12½").

Map showing Behring's travels from Tobolsk over Lake Baikal to Kamchatka. A large title cartouch occupies an unknown expanse of the Arctic coastline of Siberia, and shows two Tartar figures, equipped for hunting and has a brief dictionary of terms from the Russian to English for the words - Krepost (fortress), Ostrog (little fort), Sloboda (borough) and Monastir (convent). This was the earliest English language map to show the route of explorer Vitus Behring.
