Przhevalsky Mountain (1896)

Przhevalsky Mountain 1896

This map of a mountainous area in southeastern Xinjiang can be found in appendix to the third volume of Труды тибетской экспедиции 1889-1890 гг. подъ начальствомъ М. В. Певцова [Works of the Tibetan expeditions 1889–1890 under the leadership of M. V. Pevtsov] edited by M. V. Pevtsov and published in 1896.

It is a pencil-sketch map of an area south of Altyn Tagh, between Kolumba Mountain depicted to the north of the map and Przhevalsky Mountain to the south. The latter mountain ridge was named after former Tibetan Expedition leader Przhevalsky who after his death was succeeded by the current Expedition leader M. V. Pevtsov. There are markings for points of astronomical measurement and gold mines, as well as Roborovski’s travel route.

Five other maps are appended to this volume illustrating areas around the Cherchen oasis, Keriya River, Altyn Tagh, Konche River and Bagrash-Kul Lake.
