Separately-printed maps of Cyprus and Crete, both orientated with north to the left, both unsigned but attributed to Lafreri by Bifolco and Ronca, on the grounds that the plates were owned by Lafreri's successors, Duchetti, Orlandi and van Schoel.
The map of Cyprus still shows the Frankish city walls destroyed in 1567.
