From Ortelius' magnificent atlas, the "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum", this is an early and attractive map of Dalmatia and the surrounding countries. The atlas in which this map appeared 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 atlas was frequently reprinted up to 1612, 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 generally found with text on the reverse. This is the English text edition.
