Peter Schenk the Younger (born February 15, 1693 in Amsterdam; † January 14, 1775 in Amsterdam) was a German engraver and map publisher who is considered the most important publisher of Saxon special maps in the first half of the 18th century. He was the son of the engraver and map publisher Peter Schenk the Elder (1660-1711) and followed the expansion of his range of maps and topographical views of central Germany, which his father had started. He also acquired printing plates from the Dutch publisher Nicolaes Visscher II to further expand the publishing program. Schenk also often worked with Adam Friedrich Zürner. (Wikipedia)
