Decorative example of Ortelius' map of the northern tip of the Adriatic, from Venice to Fiadona, from his Thedatrum Orbis Terrarum, the first modern atlas of the world.

The map shows a marvelous detailed plan of Venice and extends to east of Istria and north into the Maritime Alps. A nice full color example with wide margins. Based upon a manuscript map by Johannes Sambucus sent to Ortelius, shortly before 1573, itself based on an anonymous Venetian map of Friuli, from the 1560's.
