PRÆFATIO.

                                        MIRARI quispiam non debet, in amplissimis Septentrionalium
                                        terris, præsertim peninsulæ Scandianæ ( quamScandiana peninsula alter orbis æstimatur.
                                        Plinius, ob incompertam magnitudinem, alterum orbem,
                                        & Iordanes, ac Paulus Diaconus vaginam, sive officinam
                                        gentium appellant ) diversitatem fore habituum, ac vestimentorum,
                                        pariter & morum, ac conditionum, circa incolarum
                                        convictum, & cohabitationem adventantium alienigenarum,
                                        ac judicia vtriusque, & quam syncera tranquillitate
                                        veteribus institutis olim adhærentes, singuli concorditerConcordia vetus.
vivere dicebantur, vbi nunc crescente discordia, paucissimi sua forte contenti
videntur: in quo rursus mirandum non est, dum eo processit astuta hominum
pernicies, vt quisque suæ destructionis factus sit artifex ingeniosus, foris scilicet habituPernicies astuta cuncta subvertit.
discissus, & intus in mente corruptus: foris legibus parere simulans,
& vbique disseminans dolos: quorum tandem effectum, &
exitum, ad vltimum infamia plenus, & omnibus
odiosus e vita discedet.
