Chapter Summary

This section of the book Bernhard Varenius (1622-1650) presents the list of contributors for the book. Bernhard Varenius achieved renown as a result of his Descriptio regni Japoniae, 1649, the first comprehensive description of Japan from a European perspective (which was published as one of the 'republics' by Elzevier in Amsterdam). But his real influence derives from his general geography (Geographia Generalis, 1650) in which he describes geography as such, without special regional features.

Keywords:Bernhard Varenius; Descriptio regni Japoniae; Geographia Generalis
