Original antique copper engraving, hand colored in outline and wash when published. The map shows the Lower Saxony district. The oval cartouche is at the bottom right. Almost the entire left side of the map is a detailed table with explanations and the mileage scale. Johann Christoph Weigel, known as Christoph Weigel the Elder (9 November 1654 – 5 February 1725), was a German engraver, art dealer and publisher. He was born at Redwitz, Free imperial city of Eger in Egerland, and died in Nuremberg, aged 70. The cartographer Weigel worked around 1719 in Nürnberg and his maps are showing the typical style of this period in map making in Southern German. He worked very close as with Johann B. Homann in Nürnberg. All his maps were hand colored in outline and decorative body color immediatelly in his printing house, after they were printed. Adam Gottlieb Schneider (1794 - 1805) was a German publishing concern based in Nuremburg. Schneider and Weigel's work fits into the German tradition established by Homann, Seutter, and Lotter.
