Georg Matthaus SEUTTER "il Vecchio" (1678 - 1757)
Parte Orientale de la Nouvelle France ou de Canada....
1745. Bella e insolita mappa del norest del Canada, con Nuova Scozia, Labrador e Terranova. Questo è il secondo stato della mappa disegnata da Seutter e incisa da Lotter, con l'imprint di Lotter. La mappa ha una forma allungata che distorce il territorio di Terranova. La carta è molto dettagliata, soprattutto lungo le coste e nell'idrografia. In alto, a destra, è una grande cartiglio decorativo con figure allegoriche, capi indiani, esploratori ecc. Incisione in rame, coloritura coeva, in buone condizioni. Very unusual elongated map of the East coast of Canada. A beautiful map of Northeastern Canada, including Nova Scotia, Labrador and Newfoundland. This is the second state of the map originally drawn by Seutter and engraved by Lotter, with Lotter's imprint. The map's vertical format elongates the geography and distorts Newfoundland. The St. Lawrence River runs nearly north-south. It is very detailed, especially along the coastlines and rivers. Many place names, both European and Indian. At bottom right is a scene with several sailing ships. At top left is a huge decorative title cartouche featuring allegorical figures, Indian chiefs, explorers, mapmakers, a fleet of ships, fishermen and wildlife. Copperplate, original colour, in good condition.
