Cluver was born in Danzig and after studying at Leyden and Oxford, he became interested in modern and historical geography; his subsequent publications made a wide and influential contribution to knowledge of the subject.
Philip Cluvers Introductonius was a popular geography book, first published in 1624 without maps. There were many editions throughout the 17th and 18th centuries with maps from several sets of plates.
