An orographical map of European Russia south of 60° N. lat. and from the western frontier to the Ural Mountains, on a scale of 60 versts (40 miles) to the inch, was published in 1889 by Lieut.-General Tillo.

1. A low plain comprising all European Russia from the western frontier and the Caucasus northwards to the Ural Mountains, together with the similar plain of Turkestan and Western Siberia to the river Yenesey.

Most of the details of this sketch are derived from Brockhaus, Russia in the Past and Present ( St. Petersburg, 1900), pp. 5-17, and from General Tillo's maps. Brockhaus contains a good bibliography. On the physical geography of Finland, see the excellent Atlas de Finlande, with its accompanying volume of text, published by the Geographical Society of Finland (Helsingfors, 1899), folio and 8vo.
