The Imperiia Project: a spatial history of the Russian Empire

Muller Retort

This is a Dutch edition of the map made in 1754 by Gerhard Muller (co-founder of the Academy of Sciences, father of Russian ethnography, court historian, and member of the Second Kamchatka Expedition, but NOT a cartographer by training) to refute the treasonous map published by de L'Isle in 1752. Muller's work was immediately recognized as accurate and authoritative (though you may beg to differ). The map was widely circulated and reproduced by French and English mapmakers for decades.
