By means of iron and steel we build houses, hew quarries, and cut in stone ; yea, and in one word, we use it to all other necessary uses of this life. " Contrariwise, the same iron serveth for wars, murders, and robberies ; not only to offend and strike therewith in hand, but also to reach and kill afar off, with divers sorts...
Side 9 - Dicsarchia, and other mart towns. Some of these merchants that buy of these wares, cause them to be wrought by the coppersmiths, who beat and fashion them into all sorts of tools, instruments, and other shapes and fancies ; as some they neatly beat into the shape of birds, others into spades, hooks, and other sorts of utensils.
