342        DE BELLIS NAVALIBUS


illustration placeholder

De mutua strage mercatorum pro portubus Islandiæ.


CAP. XV.


Strages & perleculum mercatorum.                                         MISERABILE spectaculum negotiatorum mutua strage
                                        sese ob quæstum vsque ad vitæ periculum, & discrimen
                                        bonorum omnium, etiam vlciscendæ stirpis sive domi, sive
                                        foris impetentium, vt oculis apertis, & clara luce intueri
                                        non valeant, quantis deprædationibus vbique sint
                                        subjecti, nisi & ipsi arma acuere scirent: & in propriam
                                        extendere calamitatem. Inter quos Vandalicarum vrbium
                                        Bremenses, Rostochienses, Vismarienses, ac Lubicenses
                                        principales existimantur: demum Anglorum, Scotorumque
Portus Islandensium. mercatores, qui de primatu, & privilegio Islandensium portuum occupandorum
adeo pertinaciter instar navalium bellorum litigant, & mutua strage ob quæstum lacerant,
vt sive is, sive alter se strenuum victorem existimet, semper fisci speculator
assistit, qui vtranque partem tam ordinaria quam extraordinaria exactione, tam in
ære quam corpore gravissime corripere novit. Longe tutius eis foret, vt judicio maritimæ
Leges maritimæ a Visby. legis Visbycensis altercationes marinorum portuum quoad antiqua privilegia
ex æquitate dirimerent, quam sese ita insatiabili præfectorum rapacitate deiicerent laniandos.
Est & alia longe imprudentior mercatorum insania, vt bellum indicere,
Tutum nunquam erit rnercatoribus, præliari cum principibus. militemque conscribere, arma, navesque componere audeant adversus potentissimos
Reges, qui provincias, territoria, vrbes, castella, & denique infinitam multitudinem
plebium, continua tributa ad nervum belli afferentium habent: vbi etiam si
prudentissimi mercatorum senatores sint, nil penitus præter ambiguum quæstum
Quæstus mercatorum trepidus. vndequaque e dominiis principum cum indicibili formidine, ac trepidatione prædonum
in terra, & piratarum in mari, conquirere habent. Et esto conniventibus
