This valuable work is probably the oldest textbook of geography from the period of early Enlightenment, and certainly with the greatest number of editions (36) and translation into almost all major European languages of the 18th and 19th centuries. The book was regarded for a long time as one of the best and most authoritative textbooks of geography. The first issue in the German language was printed in Leipzig in 1693, and it was translated into the Russian language by the order of the emperor and great prince Peter I. The translation was made in 1711 and 1716, and the first Russian edition was published in April 1719 in Moscow. The copy currently in the possession of the Development Center of the Russian Geographical Society in Serbia is handwritten with dimensions of 230 mm x 190 mm. The book is a featured monogram of the Romanov dynasty, and as a copywriter was signed by Hieromonk Nikodim. The work on this copy of the book was completed in 1774 during the reign of Catherine the Great.
