Notes

First and only edition, attractive and uncommon, just seven copies on OCLC, four of them in Italy and one apiece in the USA (Harvard), Germany (Bayerische Staatsbiblioothek), and Switzerland (Sistema Bibliotecario Ticinese); no copy in the UK. A timely and thorough description of the Baltic and the cities of its coast, published during the Crimean War: "The eyes and the hearts of all nations are today looking east to the terrible struggle between Russia and Turkey and her allies France and England" (Preface). The plates include Åland, Åbo, St Petersburg, Sveaborg (now Suomenlinna), Helsinki, and Kronstadt (two plates and a plan).
