Published by Seutter, 1736
Printed by Lahaina Printsellers, Ltd., 2016
This superb reproduction of an original map entitled, "Diversi Globi Terr-Aquei..", was first published by Mattheus Seutter in 1736. This dramatic and highly informative world map was published in Atlas Novus, 1736 edition, by cartographer and publisher Mattheus Seutter of Vienna.
The dramatic double hemispheres showing the lands and oceans of the world are surrounded by 12 smaller globes of other views and scientific explanation. The five views of North America represent California as an island, and the Pacific is unexplored except for the tracks of Juan Gaetano, (who reportedly visited Hawaii and Tasman.)
The Seutter family was one of the most important and prolific German map publishers of the 18th century.
