* * * * Ed e da noi si strano, Che quando ne ragiono I' non trovo nessuno, Che l'abbia navicato, * * * * Le parti del Levante, La dove sono tante Gemme di gran valute E di molta salute: E sono in quello giro Balsamo, e ambra, e tiro, E lo pepe, e lo legno Aloe, ch' e si degno, E spigo, e cardamomo, Giengiovo, e cennamomo; E altre molte spezie, Ciascuna in sua spezie, E migliore, e piu fina, E sana in medicina. Appresso in questo loco Mise in assetto loco Li tigri, e li grifoni, Leofanti, e leoni Cammelli, e dragomene, Badalischi, e gene, E pantere, e castoro, Le formiche dell' oro, E tanti altri animali, Ch' io non so ben dir quail, Che son si divisati, E si dissomigliati Di corpo e di fazione, Di si fera ragione, E di si strana taglia, Ch'io non credo san faglia, Ch' alcun uomo vivente Potesse veramente Per lingua, o per scritture Recitar le figure Delle bestie, e gli uccelli....

- From _Il Tesoretto di Ser Brunetto Latini_ (circa MDCCLX.). (_Florence_, 1824, pp.
