Dr. Johannes Bohn was a noted 17th century German physician, professor of medicine, and pioneer in forensic science. He introduced the policy of thorough autopsies of the deceased. Bohn's specialty was the investigation of lethal wounds, which is what this book is about.
In this treatise Dr. Bohn analyzes purposeful vs accidental fatal wounds. It is one of the relatively few important works to survive Bohn's stipulation in his will that his scientific writings be burnt.
Bound in full vellum with title page printed in red and black. Spine titled by hand in ink. Text is in Latin.
