A nicely engraved bird's-eye plan of the city of St. Petersburg, centered on Petrogradsky Island and the Peter and Paul Fortress. The rectangular grid on Vasilyevsky Island shows Peter the Great's original intention of creating a network of intersecting canals and streets similar to Venice or Amsterdam. Kronstadt, the city's main seaport, is shown in a small scroll cartouche at bottom left. A banner-style title cartouche adorns the top of the plan.
