Al centro campeggia un ricco cartglio mentre negli angoli ci sono due piccoli emisferi polari. Lotter, incisore e geografo tedesco, dopo aver lavorato per Seutter, suo suocero, ne rilevÚ l'attivit? alla sua morte mantenendo alto il livello artistico della sua produzione. Buon esemplare con margini laterali ampliati e lievi reintegrazioni alle estremit? dell'incisione.Copper engraving, original color, mm 430x650. Fairly good condition with some restoration of the extreme outer engraved area and outer margins added. The Seutter family of cartographers were the leading family in map business in Germany. Georg Matthaeus Seutter, Geographer to the Imperial Court, founded the family business and was later joined by his son, Albrecht Carl Seutter, who eventually succeeded to the business. The Seutters engaged the talented engraver Tobias Conrad Lotter to produce maps for various atlases. Lotter eventually took over the Seutter cartography business. This map of the winds, bearing Lotter's name, is typical of the bold engraving with rich Baroque motifs of the Seutter/Lotter firms. Nr.cat: 1864
