CAP. XVIII.


Alber. lib. 24.                                         CETVS humanæ propagationis more cum balena congrediens,
                                        ob velocitatem coitus multum sperma emittit, &
                                        resoluit, atque sic resolutum vulua totaliter non admittit.
Ceti sperma passim ampliat invndis.                                         Spargitur ampie per mare in diversis figuris, colorem cæruleum
