    • 1597, Shakespeare, 2 Henry IV, Act 3, Scene 1.
      O God! that one might read the book of fate,
      And see the revolution of the times
      Make mountains level, and the continent,
      Weary of solid firmness, melt itself
      Into the sea! and, other times, to see
      The beachy girdle of the ocean
      Too wide for Neptune's hips; how chances mock,
      And changes fill the cup of alteration
      With divers liquors!
  2. Pertaining to a beach or something beach-like.
