Three maps on one plate: Senensi, part of Tuscany, Corsica and the Marche Ancona district. Ortelius' atlas, the "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum", in which this map was published, achieved instant fame as "the world's first regularly produced atlas" (Skelton), being the first atlas with maps prepared to a uniform format. It was also an immediate commercial success, being reprinted four times in 1570, the first year of its publication. The atlas was frequently reprinted, with many of the maps re-engraved and up-dated, and new maps added so that later editions contained up to 163 map sheets. The maps themselves are finely engraved, often very decorative and are generally found with text (here Spanish) on the reverse.
