Matthaus Seutter

One of the great 18th-century German cartographic families was the Seutters. George Mattaus Seutter the elder was an apprentice to Johann B. Homann, (another great German cartographer who's style was a big influence), in the late 17th century. He left Homann and settled in Augsburg where he set up his own shop.

By 1732 Seutter was one of the most prolific publishers of his time and was honored by the German Emperor Charles VI with the title of “Imperial Geographer”. Seutter continued to publish until his death, at the height of his career, in 1757. The Seutter firm continued under Seutter’s wastrel son Albrecht Carl until his death in 1762.
Following Albrecht’s death, the firm was divided between the established Probst firm and the emerging firm of Tobias Conrad Lotter. Lotter, Matthäus Seutter’s son in law, was a master engraver and worked on behalf of the Seutter firm.
Lotter would eventually become one of the most prominent cartographers of his day.

Matthaus Seutter the elder first published his "Atlas Geographicus" in 1720 and added to the contents in subsequent editions under the title "Atlas Novus".
His most important atlas was his Atlas Novus sive Tabulae Geographicae
