A fanciful work with fictional parts and fantastic illustrations. An account of Bernardo Buil an Aragonese monk or friar, known as Fray Buil, who accompanied Christopher Columbus on his second voyage across the Atlantic.

They can be slimy or scaly and are often pictured threatening ships or spouting jets of water.
