The Atlas starts with the extremely decorative bird's-eye view of Venice (p. 1), and then illustrates the islands of the Mediterranean and the Greek mainland (p. 27), including Cyprus (p. 20), Malta (p. 43), Crete (p. 16), Morea (p. 12), Corfu (p. 9), Negreponte (p. 35) and Rhodes (p. 24). It also shows the other Mediterranean islands of Sicliy (p. 37), Sardinia (p. 50), Elba (p. 53), Corsica (p.46), Minorca (p. 57) and Majorca (p. 55). Outside the Mediterranean other European Islands and important trading nations are shown: The British Isles (p. 59), Ireland (p. 70), Scotland (p. 66), Iceland (p. 77), Holland (p. 73) and Gotlandia (p. 79). The non-European maps include 4 maps of the Americas; Cuba (p. 88), Hispaniola (p. 81), the continent of North America (p. 101: this is a reduced-size version of Forlani's very important map of North America published in Venice in 1565 which was the first of the land mass as a single geographic entity - and the first atlas map of North America) and a birdseye view of Temistitan, or Mexico city (p. 105). Africa only has a map of Madagascar here called St Lorenzo (p. 91); whilst Asia is represented by Tapprobana (Sri Lanka/ Ceylon) (p. 94) and the Molucche islands or East indies (p. 98). Two world maps finish the Atlas, an oval world map (on p. 109) is a reduction of Camocio's large world map issued in 1576. The last map (p. 114) is a Carta Maritima focused on the Atlantic showing the Old and New Worlds and the unknown continent of Antarctica with numerous rhumb lines for navigation.
