218        DE MINE. ET METAL.

ad hæc vsque tempora Lutheranorum, magna civium diligentia, pro earum filiabus
caste, & sancte educandis, custoditum, sed nunc eversum. Comes etiam hujus sanctissimæ
Mechthildis Roschildensis. viduæ fuit quædam Mechthildis, de regno Daniæ illustris prosapiæ virago:
cujus violentus sponsus contradicentem opprimere volens, ab altis scalis cadens,
fracta cervice subito expiravit. Hæcque in medio noctis silentio aufugiens, ope prædictæ
mulieris viduæ, in sanctai virginitate vsque vitæ exitum plena bonis operibus
illæsa permansit.

De pellicibus, & diversitate pellium.

CAP. XX.

                                        MIRANTVR plurimi quomodo tute, & sane vivant
                                        homines in horrendis frigoribus plagæ Septentrionalis, de
                                        quibus primo lib. cap. XIX. pro parte extitit declaratum:
Quæstio continua.                                         hancque levem quæstionem vltra XXX. annos audieram in
                                        Italia, præsertim ab Aethiopibus, & Indis, quibus onerosus
                                        videntur vestitus sub zona torrida, ferre plumaceas
                                        vestes e psittacis, et discoloribus papagallis artificiose confectas:
                                        quibus respondetur, prout omni præterito ævo poterat
Natura rerum mater.                                         responderi, Naturam omnium rerum matrem nihil agere
superfluum, neque diminutum, immo omnibus productis optime providere. Gaudet
Indus. Indus multiplici plumarum genere, magis forsan pro tegumento, quam necessitate:
Scytha. rursus Scytha villoso vestitu, & tegmine pro commoditate. Nec terminum
commutare licebit sagacitate naturæ præseriptum: quæ sicuti sub polo Antarctico
immensos calores, difficili remedio temperandos, amplectitur: ita sub Arctico adversus
Remedia frigoris arcendi. asperrimas hyemes, glacies, frigora, & spiritus procellarum opportuna remedia
faciliter administrat, ligna videlicet in maxima copia, & levissimo pretio,
& demum pelles diversorum animalium, tam sylvestrium quam domesticorum, vt
Animalium nomina. sunt,
Agnorum        Dossorum        Lutrarum
Alcium                Fibrorum        Mardurorum
Asperinorum        Gulonum        Onagrorum
Bisontium
