This beautiful antique hand-colored map depicting the island of Corsica was published by German brewer-turned-map publisher Matthäus Seutter in 1728. Though map making was not his first profession, Seutter excelled in the business, becoming one of the most prolific publishers of his time. In 1727 he became Imperial Geographer to German Emperor Charles VI.
