A map showing the marches of the Russian army in the area of the Crimea in 1736-7. Russo-Turkish War (1735-9). Oriented with north to top.

This map is derived from RCIN 728001.a and shows the same information. This example is the same as RCIN 728003 but lacks the French title above the border of the map which, on this copy, has evidently not been trimmed off.
