Cluverius' work is of importance for the development of geographical theory, and he is considered the founder of the science of historical geography. His Introductio treats each country, especially of Europe, separately and in considerable detail, and attention is given to the human element. Joseph Vorstius edited Cluverius’ work after his death and published it in 1624. The work appeared in numerous editions from 1624, but the early editions are not illustrated. The Brunswick edition was the first to be illustrated, and many of the maps are by Conrad Buno. The maps in the various illustrated editions are not the same. The various publishers of the work chose particular maps for their editions. In fact there are four different versions of the map of Cyprus in the various editions of the Introductio.
