SEUTTER Matthäus
- Augsburg s.d. (circa 1730), 62,6x53,3cm, une feuille rempliée. - Edition originale de cette carte à toutes marges, gravée sur cuivre et rehaussée en couleurs à l'époque. Une déchirure restaurée au verso en bas portant légèrement atteinte à la partie droite du cartouche de titre. Cette carte, très détaillée et légendée en français, montre une grande partie de l'Amérique du Nord en particulier le Mississippi et les Grands Lacs. En bas à gauche une échelle montre les « heures de chemin » entre les différents points ainsi que les latitudes et longitudes. Très bel exemplaire de cette carte évoquant John Law et l'affaire de la bulle du Mississippi. « Le cartouche de cette carte de Matthaeus Seutter (1678-1757) est particulièrement soigné. Il dépeint de manière allégorique la tristement célèbre bulle spéculative de la Compagnie du Mississippi de 1719. Les ressources à même d'exploiter les richesses de la Louisiane avaient été largement surévaluées et les actionnaires floués puis ruinés par la publicité mensongère orchestrée par l'économiste écossais John Law. Sur le cartouche, Fortuna, déesse de la chance, verse des joyaux et autres richesses mais elle est perchée sur une bulle, symbole de la précarité. En bas, des chérubins produisent des actions de la compagnie à l'aide d'une presse à imprimer tandis que d'autres soufflent des bulles de savon, entourés de ballots d'actions sans valeur. Autour du socle, des investisseurs se désespèrent, certains se jetant d'un arbre, un autre s'empalant sur son épée ou s'arrachant les cheveux. Au-dessus de leurs têtes, un ange laisse pendre un … [Click Below for Full Description]

1730. "Accurata Designatio Celebris Freti prope Andalusiae Castellum Gibraltar ( )Copperplate engraving/etching with contemporary hand colouring. on hand laid (verge) paper. Sheet size: 61 x 53 cm. Image size: 59,2 x 49,8 cm. Source unknown, to be determined.Made by Matthias Seutter after an anonymous artist. Matthias Seutter (1678- 1757) Augsburg was the son of a goldsmith in Augsburg. In 1697, Seutter began his studies in Nuremberg and subsequently worked in the publishing house of Jeremias Wolff in Augsburg. In 1710, he established his own publishing house and print shop. The Seutter publishing house produced a great number of maps, atlases, and globes. However, very few original maps were printed there, as Augsburg at that time had no university and no connection to the fields of mathematics or the natural sciences. Seutter therefore copied the work of other cartographers, making his own engravings based on their models. Over 500 maps were produced in his studio. Seutter's most well-known works are the 1725 "Geographical Atlas or an Accurate Depiction of the Whole World" ("Atlas Geographicus oder Accurate Vorstellung der ganzen Welt") with 46 maps, the 1734 "Large Atlas" ("Grosser Atlas") with 131 maps, and the 1744 pocket atlas "Small Atlas" ("Atlas minor") with 64 maps. Matthäus Seutter died in 1757. Seutter's son Albrecht Karl, his son-in-law Conrad Tobias Lotter, and his business partner Johann Michael Probst ran the printing business for five more years.Condition: Very good, given age.
