A literary curiosity gathered from unexplored sources and from books of the greatest rarity. "To all scholars bouquineurs, bouquinistes bibliophiles and bibliographers whose frequent delight it is to leave the beaten track of learning and to wander at their own sweet will into the by-paths and hidden nooks of literature, I dedicate this work begun with joyful expectation continued with increasing pleasure and ended with regret." Contents: Vetus Testamentum Anagrammaticum: Genesis to Book of Job, The Psalms: Separate Texts, Psalm LI, Psalm XCI, Psalm CXII, Appendix to Psalms, Proverbs to Malachi; Apocrypha Anagrammatica; Novum Testamentum Anagrammaticum: Gospels of Matthew and Mark, The Lord's Prayer in Seven Anagrams, Gospels of Luke and John, The Magnificat in Three Anagrams, The Angelical Salutation, Acts of the Apostles to Apocalypse. With a special bibliography. A large portion of this book is in Latin. Extremely scarce-only fifty copies were purported to have been published.
