The meticulously detailed Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge plan of Moscow, Russia, is centered on the Kremlin, with major thoroughfares and public places and buildings named. At the upper left corner is a vignette of the Church of the Assumption in the Kremlin; the larger vignette below the plan is a panoramic view of the city center from Sparrow Hill. A note on the lower right gives English translations of Russian geographic terms.
