Matthaus Seutter: Carte des Isles De Maiorque, Minorque et D'Yvice

Map: MED2301
 
Cartographer: Matthaus Seutter
Title: Carte des Isles De Maiorque, Minorque et D'Yvice
Date: c. 1740
Published: Augsburg
Width: 23 inches / 59 cm
Height: 20 inches / 51 cm
Map ref: MED2301
Description:
Elegant map of the Balearic Islands (Mallorca, Menorca, and Ibiza) with inset maps of the port of Mahon and the Western Mediterranean. This map was copied almost directly by Matthaus Seutter from the French hydrographer J.N. Bellin’s chart of the same region. The panel of text below the map explains the sources for Bellin’s map, namely Ottens and Ayrouard and how this map differs from these earlier maps.

The choice of French as the language used on this map is highly unusual for Seutter as he was based in Germany and almost always published his maps in Latin.

Original hand-colour. [MED2301]
