Michael Ritter:

Maps by Joseph Carmine (1749–after 1822), art publisher from Augsburg

Cartographica Helvetica 44 (2011) 43–49


Among the numerous art publishers from Augsburg, Italian art dealers who established themselves in this imperial Swabian city in the 18th century, formed a particular group. Although they printed mainly religious images or optical views, they did have a few maps in their range of products. Even though these maps are only of minor significance to the history of cartography, they nevertheless provide an interesting insight into the entwinement of publication and distribution centers of the graphic industry in Central Europe. This is exemplified by the so far fourteen known maps by Joseph Carmine, some of which can be traced back to Amsterdam.
