Notes

Johannes Bohn (1640-1718) was Professor of anatomy and surgery at Leipzig University and a pioneer in forensic medicine. This influential textbook on wounds was first published in 1689, and is notable for drawing 'distinctions between ante- and post-mortem wounds and wounds deadly per se from accidental factors' (Madea, 'Handbook of Forensic Medicine,' 2014).
