PRÆFATIO.

                                        TOLERABILIA satis viderentur præmissa campestriaLoca bellorum.
                                        certamina, late per rura inter montes, valles, rupes, Causæ leves bellorum.
                                        cavernas, abrupta præcipitia, paludes, voragines, sylvas,
                                        insidiosas speluncas, & feroces bestias ( quandoque
                                        ob leves offensiunculas ) in mille tormentis perpessa, quod
                                        infelices bellatores periclitentur, & sanguinem fundant,
                                        nisi & reliqua viscera in classicis congressibus vastissimi
                                        gurgitis impacabili stimulante furia, & ferocia, inter monstra
                                        marina recolligerent dilanianda: quod eo formidabiliusArina ignivoma.
plerunque evenit, quo periculosius ignivomis armis, elementorumque potenti bello
pugnatores hujusmodi mediis in aquis obiiciuntur interimendi. Nec locus, aut natioBella semper imminent.
reperitur in orbe, quo non grassetur hoc infelicissimum malum, quemadmodum infinitis
exemplis ostenditur vbique fuisse factum, atque impacabili furore timetur agendum. Saxo.
Meminit horum navalium præliorum egregius Danorum historicus Saxo Sialandicus,
in vita Frothonis, & præcipue Regis Haraldi, quod hæc contra Ringonem
Suecorum Gothorumque Regem, nedum cruentissimo, sed infelicissimo congressu, Crantzius.
& exitu fuissent assumpta. Similiter & Albertus Crantzius in historiis AquilonariumArchiepiscopus Vpsalensis.
regionum, ac post omnes alios charissimus antecessor, & frater meus
Io. Magnus Gothus Archiepiscopus Vpsalensis, qui atrocissima bella facta meminit
in Aquilonaribus regnis, prout ipse testatur, & infra pro parte referuntur exempla,
quomodo scilicet robore navium, virtute militum, agilitate & arte rectorum, Virtutes victoriæ obtinendæ.
& scientia remigum, maximo terrori bellici conflictus inimicis esse solent,
præsertim naves igniferæ : quæ magis ad incendendum
obliquo rostro deputantur, quam ad præliandum.
Quo fit, vt ignibus haud absumpta,
clade tristiore suffocentur in
aquis.
