De naufragiis Gruntlandiæ.


CAP. X.


                                        SATIS horribili hoc spectaculo, quid interpretandum
                                        veniet, sine multorum casuum, & verborum circuitum demonstratrur:
                                        attamen vnde, & quibus hæc eveniant, parumper
                                        aperiendum erit, videlicet, quod littora eius regionisVoragines arenosæ.
                                        admodum arenosa sunt, voraginibusque plena, quasi
                                        inter profundas valles, sublimesque montes itinerandum
                                        soret: in quorum vertice arbores vi tempestatum evulsæ,
                                        atque eo depulsæ putrescentes, ibidemque firmatæ, facili attactu
                                        consodiunt naves: quæ etsi arte, laboreque hæc pericula
evadere velint, nequaquam vi sæuorum ventorum permittuntur. Ventus enimVentus Circius.
Circius ( de cujus violentia satis superius lib. primo tactum est ) adeo vehemens inPlenilunio sæviores venti.
Septentrionalibus aquis est, præsertim plenilunio concurrente, vt quasi fatalis, &
formidabilis omnibus eo navigantsbus fit timendus. Quibus autem hæc evemunt,
in promptu sunt Portugalenses novas adhuc terras pro perpetuanda gentis suæ gloria
( magis quam divitiis ) quæstturi. Sunt & Hispaniarum, Galliarumque naves sævissimisLittora importuosa.
ventis appulsæ, vt inhospitalia ea littora ingrediantur inviti, pœnam geminantes,
quod gentis illius linguæ commercium, vel fidem non habent exploratam.
Præterea quod in littore cernuntur habitationes humanæ, quasi eversæ carinæ.
Et merito: quia e costis cetorum, velut grandibus lignis, incolæ conficiunt ædes,
musco, & fruticibus pro nivibus, ac imbnbus arcendis solicite contegentes. OrientalioraHuitsark refugium piratarum.
autem hujus terræ (intermedia rupe Huitsark prædicta ) Norvegiam
respiciunt: quæ versus insuperabilem arcem RegisVardahus.
Norvegiæ Vardahus continuantur, sed ad Septentrionalem
plagam, & partem Occidentalem
incognito sine terrarum,
& aquarum,
ampliantur.
