Of the Time Lost or Gained in Sailing Round the World: With a Caution to Seamen, About the Allowance They are to Take for the Difference of the Sun’s Declination. ... Yet at the Ladrone Islands we found the Spaniards of Guam keeping the same computation with ourselves; the reason of which I take to be that they settled that colony by a course westward from Spain; the Spaniards going first to America and thence to the Ladrones and Philippines.

Now while she was working a son of Cal-chal, the Sun, came by and stopped to watch her mold the form. Against the inside of the jar she pressed a stone, while on the outside with a wooden paddle dripping with water she pounded and slapped until she had worked down the bulges and formed a smooth surface. The boy was greatly interested in seeing the jar grow larger, more beautiful, and smoother with each stroke, and he stood still for some time. Suddenly the Moon looked up and saw him watching her.

In 1717, Cádiz replaced Seville as the principal port city, but monopoly of port installations and trading facilities continued.

largest cities in world regions
These specified world regions are somewhat arbitrarily bounded but we have developed this spatial set of categories based on our knowledge of where large cities first emerged, and also with attention to the issue of largest empires. Our data collection effort with regard to these world regions is incomplete because most earlier studies focus on regions that had the largest cities (see Figure 2). Thus, for example, we have very little information about the sizes of largest settlements in Oceania before the modern colonial era.
