Philippi Cluverii INTRODUCTIONIS In Vniversam Geogra Phiam, tam Veterem Quam Novam Libri VI Editio ultima.priorib.Emendation Ad Illustris et Amplis Dominicum Molinum Patri Tium et Senatorem Venetum Amstelod Apud Hondium CICICCXXXVII [The Six Books of Philipp Clu[umlaut]ver's Introduction to Universal Geography, as much old as new Lastest edition, with earlier corrections For the great and glorious Domenico Molino, patron and senator of the Venetians Amsterdam at the Hondius press, 1637. A Very Good copy of an IMPORTANT AND HIGHLY-NOTABLE BOOK on Geography. The second Hodinus Press [Amaterdam] edition of a work first published in 1624 [Germany]. Per Wikipedia:Philipp Clüver (also Klüwer, Cluwer, or Cluvier, Latinized as Philippus Cluverius and Philippi Cluverii) (1580 & 31 December 1622) was an Early Modern German geographer and historian.Per Wythepedia:Clüver was born in Danzig (Gda sk), in Royal Prussia, a province of the Kingdom of Poland. After spending some time at the Polish court of Sigismund III Vasa, he began the study of law at the University of Leiden (Dutch Republic), but soon he turned his attention to history and geography, which were then taught there by Joseph Scaliger. His life's project, it developed, was a general study of the geography of Antiquity, based not only on classical literary sources, but — and this was his contribution — supplemented by wide travels and local inspections. He became virtually the founder of historical geography.While we have not determined which edition and printing, Wythepedia shows that a copy of the book was bequeathed by George Wythe to Thomas Jefferson which copy Thomas Jefferson then gave to his oldest grandson, Thomas Jefferson Randolph.
