Of the Gotebuck.

The Gotebucke is verie wanton or lascivious, verye much given to Venerie, and alwaies prone to it minding conjunction: whose eyes for insaciate lust thereof, turneth in his head and lie as it were but in one onely angle or corner of his browe. He is of such excessive whote nature that his onely bloud being kept warme suppleth the Adamant stone, and dissolveth it whereas no fire is able to doe it.
