Description: A major work describing the lands which made up Northern Europe in the 16th century. Later English editions of this book were entitled A Compendious History of the Goths, Swedes, Vandals, and other Northern Nations.

At the time of its publication, many of the subjects illustrated within the book (such as the practice of whaling) would have been novel Southern European readers.
