Title: PATAVINI TERRITORII COROGRAPHIA, IAC. CASTALDO AVCT. (A map of the territory of Padua by Iacobus Gastaldi), TARVISINI AGRI TYPVS "Auctore Io. Pinadello Phil. et I.C. Tarvisino". (A map of the fields of Treviso by Giovanni Pinandelli, philosopher and council member of Treviso). From Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, Antwerp, 1603.
The map of the region of Padua is rotated ninety degrees to the right, with West on top, and the map of the Treviso area, on the right, has North at the top. In the lower right of the latter is the Gulf of Venice, and Venice itself.
This double-map page could be halved, and each side framed to make a stunning pair.
