Tobias Conrad Lotter was a German engraver, cartographer and publisher. Through his marriage (1740) to Matthäus Seutter’s daughter, Lotter came to work in Seutter’s studio as a map engraver. Largely on his own responsibility (but still under Seutter), Lotter created the Atlas Minor (1740-1744). The atlas consists of the 63 maps, mostly engraved by him.

After Seutter’s death in 1757 and shortly thereafter Seutter’s son, about half of the publisher’s holdings were acquired by Lotter and the art publisher Johann Michael Probst the Elder (1727-1776). Both removed Seutter’s name from most of the original records and replaced it with their own.
