Fresh example of this uncommon atlas providing an extensive overview of the manufacturing industries in the Moscow province in the mid XIX centrury, as well as information on the state of the individual industries, such as silk, wool, leather, porcelain manufactories and many more. The atlas benefits from the richness of data, its convenient structure and illustrated material, including maps and lithographed views. The work lists all the Moscow merchants and their fabrics classified first by industries and then by counties (уезды). It was compiled by the member of the Committee of the Ministry of Finance Samoylov (? – 1853), who was also appointed in 1851 to describe the Russian exhibit at The Great Exhibition.
