Helmut Henne, "Lexikographie," in Lexikon der Germanistischen Linguistik, 1973, p.600: Adelung's Dictionary belongs in the category of "synchronic-normative" lexical efforts, popular during the late 17th & 18th century, because of a renewed interest in national, pedagogic and theoretical aspects of language. Henne mentions notably the dictionaries by Kaspar Stieler (1691), Leonhard Frisch (1741), and, as perhaps the best-known and most comprehensive example, Adelung's work (2. ed., 1793-1802)

Indispensable to this day, containing hundreds of biographies & countless bibliographical details otherwise unavailable. Much information & many correctives not yet assimilated in modern studies of Baroque literature, esp. for false or lacking attributions (cf., e.g., Sinold von Schütz, Gottfried Zenner). Surprisingly enough, it is also one of the richest repositories of anecdotes, strange occurrences & characters of the Baroque.--OCLC OLUC
