Mexía, Pedro

The rarities of the world

Containing, rules and observations touching the beginning of kingdoms and common-vvealths, the division of the ages, and the memorable things that happened in them: why men lived longer in those days than in these present times. Also the opinion of the great emperours, and egyptians, touching the life of man; and the strange things that have befallen kings and princes. With excellent discourses of creatures bred in the sea, to the likenesse of man; and others on earth. Very pleasant and profitable. First written in spanish by Don Petrus Messie, afterward translated into french, and now into english, by J.B. Gent
