The island at which the fleet of Pantagruel landed on the fourth day of their voyage, and where they bought many choice curiosities, such as the picture of a man’s voice, echo drawn to life, Plato’s ideas, the atoms of Epicu’ros, a sample of Philome’la’s needlework, and other objects of vertu which could be obtained in no other portion of the globe.
