Ukraine by Christoph Weigel. 1718

Christoph Weigel the Elder (1654 -1725)

Christoph Weigel the Elder was a German engraver and publisher who learned the art of copperplate engraving in Augsburg. After various positions, including in Vienna and Frankfurt am Main, he acquired Nuremberg citizenship in 1698.

In Nuremberg, he worked very closely with the imperial geographer and cartographer Johann Baptist Homann to create his maps. He published 70 books and some series of engravings during his lifetime, including in 1718, the Atlas Scholasticus, followed in 1720 by Descriptio Orbis Antiquus; he also published a Reise Atlas in 1724 and an Atlas Manualis in the same year.

His younger brother Johann Christoph Weigel ran an art dealership in Nuremberg around the same time and was also very successful.

His widow continued Weigel's publishing house after 1725, who still published some of her deceased husband's works.
