(CORVINUS, J.FR.), (ED.)., - Anabaptisticum et enthusiasticum Pantheon und Geistliches Rüst-Haus, wider die alten Quacker und neuen Frey-Geister, welche die Kirche Gottes zeither verunruhigt und bestuermet, auch treue Lehrer und Prediger Göttlichen Worts verachtet verleumbdet gelästert und verfolget haben...

(Cöthen), Wilhelm Andreas Meyer, 1702. Folio. 14 parts in 1 vol. W. woodcut vigns., head- and tail-pieces and a total of 19 engr. pls. and 30 engr. portraits. In an excellent contemporary full vellum binding, title in ink on spine. (appr. 1100 pp.). (Light to medium browning throughout, a few spots). (Libr. stamp on general title, some annot. in ink.). Jöcher I, 2127 (Corvinus): Jantz 771: Hillerbrand, 2469, copies recorded at Goshen Mennonite libr., Bethel College Kansas and Union Theological Society, New York.: Very rare and in all probability only edition of this collection of tracts containing furious attacks against Anabaptists, Quakers and similar groups or individuals. The separate title pages indicate two further printers besides Meyer from Cöthen (Hermsdorffen, Frankfurt a/Main and Johann David Bergmann, Halberstadt) and years of printing 1701/2, but clearly this is a collected edition of the separate tracts under supervision of Johann Friedrich Corvinus, Lutheran theologian. Most of the tracts are anonymous, but 5 have an author indication. Among those under attack we find a.o.: Spinoza, Jacob Böhme, Schwenkfeld, Socinus, Kratzenstein, Robert Fludd, Thomas Münzer, Berend Knipperdolling, Thomas Hobbes, Descartes, Jacob Arminius, Jacob Naylor, Sabatai Sebi (the Jewish Messiah) and Oliver Cromwell. The publication contains engraved portraits of all of these men. The contents of the collection are as follows: 2) ZACHARIAS, Th., Der Alten und Neuen Schwärmer Widertäufferischer Geist.
