De materia pontium, & natura vadorum.


CAP. VII.

                                        regnorum e trabibus potius fabricati videtur, quam ex
                                        saxis: non quod lapides, aut cementa desunt, sed quod
                                        hostium ingressus subita demolitione pontium citius per
                                        incolas ad præliandum imparatos arceantur, aut impediantur.

De bombardis Septentrionalium populorum.

CAP. VIII.
