De Scricfinnia.


CAP. IIII

                                        SCRICFINNIA regio est inter Biarmiam, ac Finmarchiam
                                         sita, angulum tamen longiorem versus Austrum,
                                        & mare Bothnicum emittens, quasi cauda sit principaliterModus celerrimus currendi i lignis planis pedibus affixis.
                                         appellata, quia incolæ eius admirabili quadam celeritate
                                         certis planis lignis instar arcuum in anteriori parte
                                        curvatis, ac pedibus affixis, directione manualis baculi
                                        vtuntur, quibus sese arbitraria voluntate sursum, deorsumque,
                                         vel oblique super nivium cacumina transferunt
                                        expedite: eo tamen modo servato, vt vnum lignum altero
fit longius mensura vnius pedis, juxta virorum, vel mulierum proceritatem: Forma lignorum
vtpote si vir, vel mulier fit octo pedum longitudine, lignum vnius pedis totidem
habebit pedes in longitudine justa, reliquum vero novem. Præterea providerant,
quod ligna illa subducta sunt tenerrima pelle vituli rangiferorum: cujus forma, &
color cervino colori assimilatur, sed longe procerior, & major est: de cujus natura
infra libro de animalibus ostendetur. Cur autem pellibus tam tenerrimis hæc
ligna subducantur, variæ redduntur causæ, vt videlicet celeriori lubricitate seseCur pelles lignis subdantur.
transferat per altas nives, vt expeditius rupium voragines, &præcipitia transverso motu
evitent, vt sursum dirigentes cursum, retrorsum non excidant: quia pili instar
sudium, aut echinorum se erigunt, miraque naturæ potentia, ne relabantur, obsistunt. Montium inaccessa penetrant.
Talibus igitur instrumentis cum ingenio currendi instructi, montium inaccessa,
valliumque ima, hyberno præsertim tempore assequuntur. Sed non æque facile
