Description :

A made-to-order atlas based on his "Atlas Novus sive Tabulae Geographicae". Matthaus Seutter the elder first published his "Atlas Geographicus" in 1720 and added to the contents in subsequent editions under the title "Atlas Novus". He was succeeded in his business by his son Georg Mathaus Seutter, and after his death his son Albrecht Carl inherited, but died early in 1762. Matthaus' widow then sold the business to her sons-in-law Tobias Conrad Lotter and Johann Michael Probst, who eventually left it to M.A. Lotter Matthaus' grandson.

PROVENANCE : Claude Antoine Clériadus de Choiseul La Baume, was born October 1733 in Nancy and died as a victim of the French Revolution at the guillotine on May 4th 1794 in Paris. Son of Charles-Marie, Marquis de Choiseul-Beaupré and Anne-Marie de Bassompierre.
de Choiseul was an aristocrat and general and made campaigns to Germany in 1758 and 1759. Most likely it was here that he obtained a group of maps from the than well know publisher Seutter.
The maps where bound in France, a manuscript index page was added to the 160 maps and town plan of Nuremberg, among a title page (originally engraved for H.Jaillot's 'Atlas François'. The original title was covered before printing, and the text underneath erased on the paper.)

Claude Antoine Clériadus de Choiseul entered service on June 5, 1746, as a cornet in the regiment of La Rochefoucauld-cavalry, which he rejoined in Italy. On the 10th of August, 1746, he was in the battle of Tidon, and in the defense of Provence, and from 1747 to 1748, he served on the frontiers of Piedmont region.
A two-page map with additional leaf with town plans of Piedmont has been added to the atlas.

On February 1, 1749, he was appointed second cornet of the Queen's Light Horse Company, with the rank of lieutenant-colonel of cavalry, then became lieutenant and captain of the bodyguards of King Stanislas II of Poland.

In 1757, he made a campaign to Germany, and was appointed November 29 to the company of the gendarmes of Orleans. He was at the Battle of Lutzelberg on October 10, 1758, and at the Battle of Minden on August 1, 1759.
On April 19, 1760, he became a second lieutenant in the Scottish gendarmes company, and he fought at Warburg on July 31, 1760, and at Clostercamp on October 15, 1760. On February 20, 1761, he was appointed camp master of a regiment Of dragoons, and became a sergeant of dragoons the same day. On the 15th and 16th of July, 1761, he was at the battle of Filinghausen, and on the 30th of August, 1762, that of Johannesberg.
In May 1763 he was promoted marshal of the camp, to take rank on 25 July 1762, and took the post of inspector general of the cavalry the following year. He was promoted to Lieutenant-General on December 5, 1781.

His collection of books is noted among his cabinet of curiosities in the literature; "Il avait réuni une bibliothèque importante et un cabinet de curiosités" (Olivier, Hermal et Roton, Manuel de l'amateur de reliures armoriées françaises, planche 813).

Arrested, he was sentenced to death and guillotined on 4 May 1794 in Paris.
