Matthäus Seutter (1678-1757) was an important German map maker in the middle of the 18th century. Initially apprenticed to a brewer, he trained as an engraver with Johann Baptist Homann in Nuremberg before settling in his hometown of Augsburg. In 1727 he received the title of Imperial Geographer. His best known work is the Atlas Novus Sive Tabulae Geographicae, published in two volumes around 1730, although most of his maps are based on earlier work by cartographers such as Homann, Delisles and de Fer.
