SEUTTER, Georg Matthaus

“Based on Homann’s earlier map of England and Wales,….The map’s most prominent feature is the display of life in Georgian times setting off the title cartouche. Both symbolic and everyday figures are used to illustrate the sciences, trade and industry, agriculture, and maritime activity throughout the realm.” Shirley, R. W. ‘Printed Maps of the British Isles 1650-1750’ page 131
