Several editions have been made at various times of extracts, among them the poetical one by as-Suyuti, which was translated into Latin by Abraham Ecchelensis Paris, The second work by al-Qazwini entitled Aja ib al-Makhlukat Marvels of creatures and Strange things existing is a book in Arabic and an important work on cosmography. Qazwini mentions fifty names as his sources, the most important of whom are old geographers and historians such as al-Istakhri, Ibn Fadlan, al-Mas udi, Ibn Hawqal, al- Biruni, Ibn al-Athir, al-Maqdisi, and al-Razi.
Notwithstanding the fact that Qazwini s work is a compilation of known and unknown sources, it influenced later works of Islamic cosmology and Islamic geography through its style and language. Qazwini s cosmography is not pure science as it was intended to entertain its readers by enriching scientific explanations with stories and poetry. Carl Brockelmann considered this work the "most precious cosmography of the Islamic culture".
