About this Item: In Officina Ahlfeldiana, Vitembergae, 1756. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Only Edition. 8vo. [x], [3]-294, [24]p. Contemporary half vellum, floral decorated boards. A very good copy, ex-library, with a bookplate on the front paste-down endpaper indicating that this book was given to the Med. Soc. of the County of Kings by Med. Soc. State of N.Y., there are two other library stamps in the book and there are later paper spine labels on the original vellum spine, and a few leaves are slightly foxed, with the exception of the title page which is moderately foxed. Extrordinary professor of medicine at Wittenberg, the prolific Boerner (1723-1761) was profoundly versed in the literature of medical history. (Bayle 2.476/2.) Indeed, much of the interest of this, Boerner's only work on legal medicine, lies in its early sections on the history of the subject, in its bibliographical references, and in the annotated bibliography at the end. For the rest, he provides his students with useful discussions of legal medicine in general, procreation and sexuality (including impotence, circumcision, hermaphroditism, unchastity, sodomy, pregnancy, the soul of the fetus, abortion, caesarian section, etc.), the definition of the stages of life (infancy, childhood, puberty, adulthood, old age), the legally significant states of mind and body (obsession, delirium, epilepsy, inedia, lues venera, contagion, etc.), and the causes of morbidity and death (wounds, poisons, infanticide, corporal punishment, etc.). This annotation was written by Jay Dillon many years ago when he worked at the CB. Size: 169x101 mm. Seller Inventory # 015804

About this Item: Pappband. Wittenberg, Ahlfeld, 1756, 8°, (8), 294, (24) Pappband der Zeit. Dieses seltene Werk zeichnet sich insbesondere durch sein um fassenden "Index Scriptorum qui de medicinina legali exposuerunt in universum" aus. - Friedrich Boerner (1723-1761) , "geboren am 17. Juni 1723 in Leipzig, daselbst am 30. Juni 1761 gestorben, war als Sohn eines Geistlichen zuerst zum Studium der Theologie bestimmt und erhielt in Torgau und Halle eine tüchtige philologische Vorbildung. Seit 1744 studirte er erst Theologie, dann Medicin in Wittenberg, seit 1746 in Braunschweig. 1748 promovirte Boerner als Dr. med. in Helmstedt, 1756 als Dr. philos. in Wittenberg. 1748 liess er sich als Arzt in Wolfenbüttel nieder und wurde 1754 als a. o. Prof. der Medicin nach Wittenberg berufen, von wo er nach Ausbruch des Krieges nach Leipzig flüchtete. Bereits 1750 war Boerner als "Cireas II" in die kaiserliche Akademie der Naturforscher aufgenommen worden. Boerner's Verdienst liegt auf dem Gebiete der medicinischen Literaturgeschichte und Bibliographie. Sein frühzeitiger Tod hat ihn verhindert, alle darauf bezüglichen Arbeiten, die er unternommen , zu Ende; zu führen. Ausser einigen kleinen literarhistorischen Abhandlungen; "De Alexandro Benedicto Veronensi(1151) - "De vita, moribus et scriptis Hieronymi Mercurialis" (1751) - "De Gosrno et Damiano" (1751) - "De Aemilio Macro" (1754) etc., welche theilweise in den Noctes Guelphicae (1755) wieder abgedruckt sind, schrieb er: "Bibliotheca librorum rariorum physico-medicorum historico - critica", spec. I. u. II.; (Helmstädt 1751-52) und "Relationes de libris phys.-medicis, partim antiquis, partim raris" (Wittenberg 1756), ferner die im Literatur-Verzeichniss sub 79, resp. 80, aufgeführten biographischen Schriftwerke. - Für seine Zuhörer verfasste er "Instilutiones medicinae legalia" (1756); endlich begann er kurz vor seinem Tode die Herausgabe einer moralischen Zeitschrift: "Ergötzungen bei müssigen Stunden", 1761." W.Stricker, Hirsch I, pp.509-510. Buch. Seller Inventory # 38908
