John Bell’s account, Travels from St. Petersburgh in Russia to various Parts of Asia, first published in Glasgow in 1763, documents his extensive journeys through Russia, China, Siberia, and Constantinople. A Scottish doctor, Bell’s narrative provides detailed observations of the landscapes, cultures, and peoples he encountered.

Accompanying the text are two folding engraved maps: “A Map of Mr. Bell’s Journeys from Petersburg to Ispahan and from Petersburg to Constantinople” and “A Map of Mr. Bell’s Journey from Moscow to Pekin.”

These well-engraved maps, printed on thick paper, offer valuable visual representations of Bell’s routes. They are often removed from copies of this collectible book, so their presence in this copy makes it more desirable.

Copies of Bell’s travels with the fold-out maps are prized by collectors for their historical significance and cartographic detail. This particular copy was sold at auction for $550 in September 2023.

John Bell’s Travels from St. Petersburgh in Russia to various Parts of Asia provides a factual account of his explorations, enhanced by accompanying fold-out maps, valuable for their historical and cartographic importance.
