Vogt, Captain Johan (fl. 1734) was a German officer and the only credited source for the first, contemporary 18th century mapping of the island of Corsica. Virtually nothing is known of him, apart from the map bearing his name, and a reference to a 1735 travelogue - 'Beschreibung der Insel Corsica' - which was apparently printed in Nuremberg and Altdorf, but has not survived in institutional collections. Its existence is hinted at only by a bibliographical reference in John Pinkerton's 1808 'A General Collection of the Best and Most Interesting Voyages and Travels in All Parts of the World.' We do not see any book of this title surviving in any institutional collection. Vogt's map appears first in 1734, printed by the firm of Homann Heirs; it was copied later by Ottens in 1737, and again in 1769 by the French mapmaker Vaugondy and the Spanish Lopez. Vogt's title, 'Capit. S.C.M.' indicates that he was an officer of the Holy Roman Empire, and was most probably German; perhaps a military engineer accompanying the 12000 Imperial troops sent in 1732 to Corsica in order to put down the revolution which had broken out there.
