recent arrival
Beautiful, later example of Mattheus Seutter's map of England and Wales. The very busy title cartouche shows pastoral and classical images blended together: Mercury, patron god of commerce, gestures towards a flock of sheep and sacks of gold piled at the feet of Britannia while Neptune, god of the sea, points at a fleet of ships. Besides the Homanns, the other great German publishers of the eighteenth century were the Seutter family. Mattheus Seutter the elder (1678-1757) was apprenticed to Johann Baptist Homann in 1697 in Nuremberg, but left to settle in Augsburg where he established his own business publishing atlases, including the "Atlas Geographicus" (1725) and "Grosser Atlas" (circa 1735). Seutter's style was heavily influenced by Homann, with distinctive similarities appearing in his maps. He was joined in the business by his son, Albrecht (1722-1762), who continued the firm in partnership with Tobias Conrad Lotter (1717-1777) on his father's death. Lotter's name in the title cartouche identifies this as a late issue of this fine map.
