The Gaelic Maundeville (Author: John Maundeville)

paragraph 266

And through this island is a great river called Renemar, and on the other side of it is a vast desert wherein is the tree of the sun and moon, which spake to Alexander and told him of his death. And men say that whoever eats the fruit of those trees remains a hundred years alive; and we were very desirous to go there until wise men hindered us and told us that a hundred thousand armed men could not go thither because of the dread of the wild beasts.
