A coloured map of Venice from about 1720

By Georg Matthäus Seutter, one of the most prolific map publishers in Germany in the 18th century. In 1732 he was appointed Imperial Geographer by Emperor Charles VI. At this time, Venice was in decline, with control of trade with the East having largely passed to the Portuguese, and up to a third of its citizens having been killed by the plague in the previous century.
