Striking early map of the Kingdom of Norway by Lotter.
The map includes a decorative allegorical cartouche with a coat of arms and tribute to Norway's fishing and shipping heritage.
Tobias Conrad Lotter (1717-1777) is one of the best-known German mapmakers of the eighteenth century. He engraved many of the maps published by Matthaus Seutter, to whose daughter Lotter was married. He took over Seutter’s business in 1756. Lotter’s son, M. A. Lotter, succeeded his father in the business.
