Philipp Cluver (1580 -1622) was an early German geographer and historian who published a number of works on the antiquities of Germany, Sicily, and the Rhine valley.

He went on to produce a number of miniature atlases including the Introductionis in Universam Geographiam which was published after his death from 1624 onwards.

This example is from Jansson's edition of 1661.

The maps were engraved by several leading cartographers of the time, predominantly by Pieter Van Den Keere, and others by Abraham Goos and Abraham Ortelius.
