Oostende, by Seutter M. 1740

Matthäus Seutter (Augsburg, 1678 - 1757)

Matthäus Seutter was an engraver, globe maker and map publisher in Augsburg. He apprenticed as an engraver to publisher J.B. Homann in Nuremberg in 1697. He returned to Augsburg c. 1707 and set up his own map publishing house, which became a primary competitor of the Homann company. As a result, most of Seutter's maps were based upon, if not copies, earlier work done by the Homann and Delisle firms.

Karl VI awarded him the title of Imperial Geographer in 1731.
