Georg Matthäus Seutter Jnr 1729-1760
After serving an apprenticeship to J. B. Homman, the Nuremberg map publisher, Seutter set up his own very successful business in Ausberg and was appointed Geographer to the Imperial Court. With his son, Albrecht, and son-in-law, Conrad Lotter, he issued circa 1741 a large series of town plans. For much of his life he worked in competition with his old employer and, not surprisingly, his maps are often very similar to Homann.
