Thanks for the guess, Bill.  My question was where in late 16th century
literature may the phrase be found, not where in the world the islands
might be found.

p.s. I passed a season in the Balearics when Graves was still living,
and living there.  That was interesting.

Comment:        Re: SHK 12.1466 Re: Geography

A Scottish friend of mine will be very pleased to hear that some
Shakespearians think Shakespeare saw England as a mere peninsula,
presumably of Scotland.
