This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1916 edition. Excerpt: ...rectus in Africameursus est which is a supplement by a humanist; I know of no other example of rectus cursus. Recta via is found in Plaut. As. 54, Ter. HT. 706, And. 600; recta alone Phor. 859, Ad. 433; Quint. 10, 1, 29 and frequently. And Cic. Fin. 1, 57 0 praeclaram beate vivendi.... et directam viam.

It makes little difference whether the cloud or the wind makes the crash which is compared to the explosion of a little bladder; there displosa does not necessitate scissa because the bladder has not a procella inside of it; displosa represents the force outside; it will not make a noise until it is exploded, but the cloud makes a noise by the action of the procella within it making its way out: missa and displosa are not parallel. But in the next paragraph, 132, he considers the theory of the tearing apart of the clouds--137 fit quoque ut interdum validi vis incita venti perscindat nubem.
