Late 18th-Early 19th C. Topographic

Many of the maps in this tab originated shortly after the last Partition of Poland in 1795. We might think of them as "proto" topographic since the display of relief is limited by use of shading and/or hachures. Later around the turn of the 19th century contour lines and spot heights (numerical elevations) largely replaced hachures in issues like the Karte des westlichen Russlands and Karte des Deutschen Reiches. However, the increased accuracy and detail of symbols in the series here make them essentially topographic. Symbols relating to Jewish life are scant in these images.

Late 19th C.-Early 20th C. Topographic

Karte des westlichen Russlands (KdwR)

 

Topographic maps published by the Prussian military at the turn of the 20th century (scale=1:100,000). The set is based on Russian, and Austrian maps and is not an original survey. All of Congress Poland is included, plus Kowno, Courland, Grodno, most of Wilna, and part of Witebsk, Minsk, and Wolynia gubernias. Spezialkarte der österreichisch-ungarischen Monarchie (1:75,000) sheets cover some of Galicia at the southern limit of the index and Karte des Deutschen Reiches (1:100,000) fills in the west side of sheets along the boundary with Prussia. This latter set of maps can be viewed at the David Rumsey site:

Spezialkarte der österreichisch-ungarischen  Monarchie

 

A set of monochrome topographic maps at the scale of 1:75,000 published by the Austrian military primarily between 1876 and 1918. Relief is depicted by the use of (older style) hachures and spot heights. Included here are sections of Austrian Galicia and Bukovina. Maps are devoid of symbols for Jewish infrastructure, however symbols for synagogues (not included in the legend) appear in a few later issues. Tavern symbols are ubiquitous. A more extensive set can be found at:

Военно–Топографичесой Карты Eвропейской Россйи

 

Military Topographic Maps of European Russia  (MTMER)

 

A set of Cyrillic alphabet, monochrome maps from mid-nineteenth through early twentieth century at the scale of 1:126,000. Provincial boundaries are visible on many editions. Transport routes, rail stations, cemeteries, churches, estates and other cultural symbols are prominent. Cyrillic originals are from various time periods which can be viewed here: http://www.maps4u.lt/lt/includes/siuntiniai/Z/1_126000_v.2.htm. Many German transliterated editions from the WWI era are included in this collection as well as a few post-WWI colored (Cyrillic) editions. The Pale of Settlement boundary has been added to the index image as well as some Jewish communities outside this limit, spotted in red.

 

 


 

Двухверстовая карта западного пограничного пространства

 

Two-verst map of the West Borderland Territory (Russia)

 

A set of maps (scale 1:84,000) spanning the late Tsarist to early Soviet period. This series employs contour lines to represent reilef unlike the older style of hacures used in the Austrian Spezialkarte and MTMER above. Later editiions are variously colored, most notably with blue representing water features. Screenshots of various editions can be viewed here:

 http://www.maps4u.lt/en/maps.php?cat=22

Area of coverage is limited to the western half of the Pale of Settlement, Congress Poland and the Baltic gubernia. Gubernia of the Pale have been colored-in on the original monochrome index map. On the maps, symbols for Jewish cemeteries are common and those for synagogues distinct, where included. In Volozhin itself, (section XV-21) two synagogues are visible, a rarety on these images. Gubernia boundaries are included on pre-revolution issues.

Some consider this set the original survey from which KdwR was prepared by the Prussian army. An extensive glossary is offered to help viewers interpret Cyrillic abbreviations found on the maps.

Provincial Maps & Atlases

 

Maps in this section cover the provinces of Central and Eastern Europe from the late 18th through the early 20th centuries. Many links to encyclopedia articles have been placed at the page of the Geographic Atlas of The Russian Empire, below.

In the Survey of the Russian Empire from 1792, are found descriptions of provincial boundaries, terrain and resources, with a listing of principal towns. Here is a Russian Gazetteer and Guide from 1919 with narrative information on geographical divisions, natural resources, industries and  populations of the provinces and over 300 towns and cities.

A variety of political boundaries from different centuries are pictured. In bold red is the boundary of the former Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth before it's partition in 1772; the Congress Kingdom of Poland, established 1815 is bounded in green. Gubernia divisions are included and dates of significant battles are located by a symbol of crossed swords.

 

The growth of Russian railways can be followed in these maps. Of the four versions, the 1879 and 1893 have the most extensive and well marked rail routes.

Operationskarte-R

 

World War 1 era, colored maps  by  the Austrian military at the scale of 1:400,000.  Types of terrain are distinguished and relief is depicted by shading and some spot heights. Thus these maps are mildly topographic. Most of European Russia is included except the Baltic region. National and provincial boundaries are present, however these regions are not specifically named. Community population information is given via several symbols. Some military symbols are included as well as navigation information on the passability of waterways. Rail routes are prominent. This set extends farther east than the Pale of Settlement boundary. Sheets for the northern Pale are lacking.
