"Carinthiae Ducatus, et Goritiae Palatinatus, Wolf. Lazio auctore," Antwerp, c. 1584, hand-colored engraving, map by Abraham Ortelius
Three maps on one sheet representing Carinthia in Austria and Istria and Zadar in Croatia. These maps show in detail early towns, mountains, forests, rivers and lakes. At the center of the map of Carinthia is the large city of Villach on the banks of the river Drau. The map of the Dalmatian coast with the area of Zadar is based on an earlier map by Venetian publisher Paulo Forlani.
