The Gaelic Maundeville (Author: John Maundeville)

paragraph 141

In India there is an island wherein are men and habitations and market-towns, and it is more than five miles in length, and it is not the custom of these men ever to leave the island because they are under the planet Saturn, which is slow in performing his course, and such is the nature of the men under it. And the contrary is in our country, because we are under the planet of the Moon, and it is easy for us to travel and to leave our own country and to go throughout the world after our planet.
