POLOGNE Suivant les degres de l'Academie des
Sciences de  Paris," Charlevoix, 13.7 x 17.6 inches /
5.5 x 7 inches, in two versions from "Geographie
Universelle." The second version has the engraver's
name, Desbruslins, almost erased from the plate
1744 Matthaus Seutter (publisher) - Tobias Conrad Lotter (engraver): "Poloniæ Regnum ut et Magni Ducat. Lithuaniæ
Accuratiss. Delin. opera et studio M. Seutteri, S.C.M. Geogr. Aug. Vindel. C. Privil. S.R. I. Vicariat. Tob. Conr. Lotter
sculpsit.", Augsburg, 7.5 x 10 inches, in three versions from the first edition of "Atlas minor præcipua orbis terrarum
imperia," as well as one meeting the same criteria, but not confidently a first edition. Note the correct coat of arms
for the dates: that of August III, and the lack of a later publisher's name under the center frameline.

The map was included in the  "Atlas Nouveau Portatif." See the 1756 version, which to me appears identical.

Augsburg, 12.5 x 16.5 cm, in the the 7th version of the
plate, from J.A.E. Machenbauer's "Der curiose und...oder

number differs from the claimed 1740 versions.
