‘While you take in hand to school others, and to teach themby what name a whale-sh is to be called in our tongueleaving out, through ignorance, the letter H, which almost alone maketh the signication o the word, you deliver that which is not true.’ —HACKLUY ‘WHALE. … Sw. and Dan. HVAL. Tis animal is named romroundness or rolling; or in Dan. HVAL is arched or vaulted.’ WEBSER’S DICIONAR‘WHALE. … It is more immediately rom the Dut. and Ger. WALLEN; A.S. WALW-IAN, to roll, to wallow.’ —RICHARDSON’S DICIONARY KEOS, GREEK.

Far rom it. As touching the ancient authors generally, as well as the poets here appearing, these extracts are solely valuable or entertaining, as aording a glancing bird’s eye view o what has been promiscuously said, thought, ancied, and sung o Leviathan, by many nations and generations, including our own.
