Hamburg : bey Christian Wilhelm Brandt, 1728-1730.
Journal/Periodical — 134 v. ; 20 cm.
Weekly periodical, each number 8 p., complete run from Jan. 2, 1728 to July 20, 1730. Important literary periodical, edited by the elder Joh. Georg Hamann, with some of the best and most advanced literary criticism of its time.
Under different pseudonyms in the same pamphlet (Irenaeus Agnostus, F. G. Menapius, Joh. Procopius, etc.) Grick fights for and against the Rosicrucian movement, takes issue with its friends and its enemies, strings together real and fictitious names, mixes real information with wild nonsense, and intentionally reduces the whole matter to chaos and ridicule.
On C6 verso it is revealed that Friedrich Grick is the real name of the Johann Procopius who wrote in defense of Johann Faulhaber and his prediction of the comet of 1618. But the author, master of confusion, is himself confused and does not distinguish between Hisaias sub Cruce Ath: (anagram for Isaac Habrecht of Strassburg) and Hisaias sub Cruce Als, who was Zimpert Wehe of Ulm, the enemy of Faulhaber.
