Atlas geographicus portatilis XXIX mappis orbis habitabilis regna exhibens.
- Augsburg, Jakobervorstadt, Lotter, [c. 1750]. 12mo (112 x 72 mm). Contemporary Augsburg binding of polished calf, ornamented in gilt (oxidized); double-page allegorical title, double-page frontispiece, both engraved by Tobias Lobeck after Gottfried Eichler, and 30 hand-coloured double-page engraved maps, light wear to both spine ends; light cropping to uper marginas, as often the case; otherwise a very good copy of a charming miniature atlas; provenance: late3 18th-century ownership inscription Selina Melga on front fly-leaf. Slightly later issue (first, 1747 with 29 maps) of a miniature highlight of Aussburg Rococo book production, charmingly bound in the capital of German Rococo. Tobias Lotter was Mattheus Seutter's son-in-law and one of the leading map engravers of the period. Tobias Lobeck was active in Vienn and Souther Germany as engraver of Saints and theatre decorations, as can clearly seen in the the title and frontispiece, which is not often found in this atlas. The first issue contained 29 maps, as indicated on the title, later issues increased the mumber of maps. The title, however was never changed. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
