Full Description

Copper engraving, 49.5 x 59 cm, original hand-colour, blank verso. This map of Gibraltar shows the Straits, and the prospect at the foot is a bird’s-eye plan of the Rock itself and its fortifications; the key is in both French and German. Tobias Conrad Lotter inherited half of the business established by his father-in-law, Matthäus Seutter; in 1758 he established his own firm, taking his share of the copper printing plates.
