Question: Matthaeus Seutter’s Pays de Perou et Chili
Pablo Halkyard writes:
I am trying to find out about a German cartographer, Matthaeus Seutter (1678-1757) who drew and published a map called “Le Pays de Perou et Chili” (The Countries of Peru and Chile). I am trying to find out when this map was published, whether it was part of an atlas (or was it a separate map), and who engraved the map? If you had any ideas as to any sources I could perhaps turn to I would be immensely appreciative.
Scans of the map in question can be viewed here and here. Here’s a brief biography of Seutter, in case you’re wondering who Pablo is talking about. This question is kind of specialized, but I suspect I should never underestimate my readers. Anyone?
