Two maps on one plate, both inspired by the work of Wofgang Lazius.The Tyrol Duchy now falls into both Austria and Italy. The second map, showing the N.Dalmatian coast with Istria and Rijeka and today forms part of Croatia. The map has a neat repair to a tear in lower centrefold. 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.
