One half page and two small maps on a double page

By Abraham Ortelius (1527-1598)
German edition (Verso text in German)
The date, 1572, in the title of Marcha Anconae is misleading. The first publication of the page with these three maps happened in 1573.
We have verso page nr. 58 imprinted. But according to scientific sources, nr.pag (map) nr. 58 was never used for this map. Instead it may be assumed that it should have been "48" which was the page nr. in the German edition of 1573
