Vandermaelen locates Kazan 1827

Belgian geographer Philippe Vandermaelen (1795-1869). Vandermaelen based his cartography on the maps of the 1824 edition of the Atlas Géographique de l’Empire de Russie compiled in St. Petersburg under the direction of "Functionary of the 6th Rank" Vasilii Petrovich Piadischeff (AKA Piadyshev, 1769-1836).
