Let $\struct {S, \preccurlyeq_1}$ and $\struct {T, \preccurlyeq_2}$ be ordered sets.

Let $\struct {S, \succcurlyeq_1}$ and $\struct {T, \succcurlyeq_2}$ be the dual ordered sets of $\struct {S, \preccurlyeq_1}$ and $\struct {T, \preccurlyeq_2}$ respectively.

Let $f: \struct {S, \preccurlyeq_1} \to \struct {T, \preccurlyeq_2}$ be an order isomorphism.

Then $f: \struct {S, \succcurlyeq_1} \to {T, \succcurlyeq_2} $ is also an order isomorphism.
