|Contextual Notes||Georg Mathaus Seutter (1678-1756) was a map publisher and cartographer from Nuremberg who set up shop in Augsburg. After an apprenticeship with J. B. Homann in 1697, he began working in Augsburg and was eventually appointed Geographer to Imperial Court. Throughout his lifetime, he competed with his old mentor and worked closely with his son-in-law to put out a collection of town plans. His works include "Atlas Germanicus" (c. 1720), "Atlas Geographicus" (1725), "Atlas Novus" (1728), "Grosser Atlas" (c. 1735), "Atlas novus sive tabulae geographicae totius orbis" (c. 1741), and "Atlas Minor" (1744). After his death, his son, Albrecht Karl, continued the business (Moreland and Bannister, 87-8; Tooley, "Dictionary of Mapmakers" 557).|
Tobias Conrad Lotter (1717-1777) was a German cartographer, engraver and publisher. He was one of the "better-known cartographers in the eighteenth-century German school" (Moreland and Bannister, 88). He worked as an apprentice to Funk. He married a daughter of Seutter in 1740. He then succeeded Seutter in 1756 and worked as partner to Albrecht, Seutter's son, and G. B. Probst, Seutter's son-in-law. Among his works are "Terra Sancta" (1759), "Sardinia and Corsica" (1764), "Russia, Turkey etc." (1769), "World" (1775-78, 1782), "New England and sh." (1779), "Pacific Ocean" (1781), "Russia" (1788), "Atlas Minor" (n.d.) and "Atlas Geographr. Portatilis" (Tooley, 401).
