Map of the historical region of Tartary, a European term that referred to the Asian regions located between the Caspian Sea and the Pacific Ocean. Prior to the nineteenth century, European knowledge of North, Central, and East Asian geography was limited, hence the general application of this name to such a broad region. Map includes parts of China, Europe, Persia, Mongolia, and the China Sea.
