Monstrorum historia memorabilis, monstrosa humanorum partuum miracula, stupendis conformationum formulis ab utero materno enata, viuis exemplis, observationibus, & picturis, referens. Accessit analogicum argumentum de monstris brutis, supplementi loco ad observationes medicas Schenckianas edita.Frankfurt: ex officina typographica Matthiae Becker, 1609.
Schenck described nearly 100 human and animal examples, illustrated with engravings by Theodor de Bry (1528-98). Most of the examples are from the 16th century. Not all the cases are teratological in the strictest sense as Schenck includes a discussion, with illustrations, of the painter and calligrapher Thomas Schweicker (1541-1602), who was born without arms, and wrote and painted with his feet.
