The map features the territory of Muscovy (Russia), with the area of Bukhara and Andijan. It was compiled by Anthony Jenkinson (?- 1610/11), an English diplomat, mechant, and traveller. Jenkinson was a main representative of the Muscovy Company, which had a monopoly on trade between England and Muscovy. He was also English Ambassador to the court of Tsar Ivan the Terrible and visited Russia twice. In 1570 the map was included in the first printed atlas of the world by the Dutch map-maker Abraham Ortelius.
The map contains the illustrations portraying a marquee of Tsar Ivan the Terrible, worship of the Golden Woman (the female idol of the northen people), Kirghizs with a shaman, covered wagons of nomads etc.
