Colored engraving: 500 x 585mm on a sheet: 532 x 610mm.001 Performed by: Georg Mátthas Seutter, in Augsburg, Germany, in 1734-1762. The theme is the staging of war strife and the identification of the strategic squares associated with the War of the Spanish Succession (1701-1713). It has its visual account through the allegorical and baroque billboards, the figures of ships in battle and the fortified scenes of the ports.
The occupation of Menorca was staged by the English in 1708 and the uprising of the siege of Ceuta in 1727. It dates its first edition around 1730. The piece reproduced differs from the initial state byography, in the title gusset, an acronym that refers to the position achieved as Imperial Geographer of Charles VI in 1731-32.
Seutter’s geographical invention is not original, but of previous cartographers. The Kingdom of Granada is represented only on its maritime facade and is incomplete when it collects the coasts of Malaga and those of Granada only up to Motril. Originally it draws the ports of Marbella, Malaga, Almuñecar, Salobreña and Motril by means of plants walled in bastion. The piece also introduces a portion of the inland territory where mountain chains, roads, bridges, rivers and towns are collected and an addition of pictures of views, one of which is dedicated to the port of Malaga.
