De opinione Solini circa Castoreum.

CAP. VI.

                                        QVOD autem Solinus dicit, castorem se castrare, ne captus
                                        hominibus prosit, in Septentrionalibus oris nulla videtur
                                        assertio veritati conjuncta, vt Plin. lib. XXXII. Testiculi non videntur abscisi in castoribus captis.
                                        cap. III. testatur: quia a venatoribus captus, testiculos
                                        semper habet annexos, majori vel minori quantitate, juxta
                                        magnitudinem animalis: sed substrictos, & adhærentes spinæ,
                                        nec adimi posse sine vitæ jactura. Agricolæ ex eiuisPrognostica ex ædificio castorum.
                                        structuris depressis vel elevatis, agros sublimiori vel humiliori
                                        loco præparant, ob aquarum inundationem majorem
vel minorem. Pro compertissima etiam medicina fœminæ Septentrionales parituræFœminæ levius pariunt bibentes castoreum.
habent, quod quantitate vnius avellanæ nucis hujus castorei cum cervisia pota, mire
alleviat parturientem. Præterea tempore pestis odoratui suppositum omnem toxicum
arcet: quia odoris gravis, gustum amaro, & friabile est. Sternutamenta etiam olfactuPestis avertitur.
movet. Somnum conciliat cum rosaceo peructo capite, & per se potum in aqua: Somnus provocatur castoreo.
aaaaa& ob id phreneticis vtile est, cum similibus a Plinio XXXII. lib. cap. III.
recitatis: vbi multa mira, & vtilia adducit. Pelles autem hujus animalis, quasi plumæPelles delicatæ castorinæ.
molles sunt, & delicatæ, ac ideo pretiosæ, miram vim contra asperitatem frigoris expellendi
retinentes: magnatum, & illustrium virorum vestitus est satis pretiosus.

De Gulonibus.

CAP. VII.

                                        INTER omnia animalia, quæ immani voracitate creduntur
                                        insatiabilia, hoc animal præsenti figura expressum, in
                                        partibus Suetiæ Septentrionalis præcipuum susceperat nomen, Gulo.
                                        vbi patrio sermone Ierff dicitur, & lingua GermanicaIerff.
                                        Vielefrass, Sclavonice Rossomaka a multa comestione: Vielefrass.
                                        Latino vero non nisi fictitio, Gulo, videlicet a gulositateRossomaka.
                                        appellatur. Grossities eius, vt magni canis: aures, Descriptio gulonis.
                                        & facies, velut catti: pedes, & vngulæ asperrimæ: corpus
