De Pygmæis Gruntlandiæ, & rupe Huitsark.


CAP. XI.


                                        SVPRADICTO capite proximo parumper de excelsa
Huitsark.                                         rupe Huitsark medio maris tractu inter Islandiam, & Gruntlandiam
                                        sita, dictum videtur: nec tædet eam repetere per
                                        amplius explanandam. In ea etenim circa annos Domini
                                        M. CCCC. XCIIII1. duo insigniores piratæ, Pining,
Piratæ Pining, &Pothorst                                        & Pothorst, ab omni humano consortio, Aquilonarium Regum
                                        severissimo edicto ob atrocissima latrocinia, quasi indespectum,
                                        & contemptum omnium regnorum, & armatorum,
                                        cum complicibus suis piratis proscripti habitabant
multaque crudelia facta in quoscunque sive prope, sive a longe navigantes, committebant:
vti & alio tempore priore Vitelliani plures, & insigniores piratæ ( sic dicti)
Vitelliani, de quibus Albertus Crantzius in Vandalia. magna facinora egerunt, & ad vltimum communibus omnium regnorum Aquilonarium
armis e vivis sunt sublati. Ita & quidam Kniphoff anno M. D. XXV.
per Hamburgenses cum LXX. complicibus e potentissima nave Galion dicta, extractis,
supplicio capitis, & rotæ suspensione sunt puniti. In hujus altissimæ rupis supercilio
Kniphof. compassus circulis, & lineis plumbeis satis ampla rotunditate, opera prædictorum
Compassus. Pining, & Pothorst, formatus est: quo meta compendiosior latrocinari volentibus
data est, vt sciant, quorsum opulentiores deprædationes extendi possint.
Videntur præteream in superiori tabula duo disparis quantitatis homines
Pygmæi, seu nani. bellatores: quorum pusillioris staturæ homunculus intrepide
sese majori obiiciens, triumphator exultat.
Non enim minori animo in omnem casum
majoribus se obiicit,
quam si gigantea
potentia
gloriari, & prævalere posset.
Iterum
