John Senex (c.1678-1740) was one of the most important English map publishers and globe makers of the first half of the eighteenth century. This is a general map of Russia from the reign of Peter the Great. The new city of St. Petersburg (founded 1703) is shown at the head of the Gulf of Finland. The Kingdom was bounded at the time roughly by the Dneipr in the West and the Volga in the east.
