cally composed, with some brief observations on sundry texts,” Oxford, 1653, 8vo. 3. “ Meditations of the mirth of a Christian Life," Oxford, 1653, 8vo. 4. “ Help to Prayer both exteinpore and by a set form; as also to Meditation," &c. Oxford, 1660, 12mo, published after the author's death by Daniel Agas, fellow of Corpus Christi college. Our author also wrote a large and learned epistle to Mr. Edmund Dickenson, M. A. of Merton college, prefixed to that gentleman's book, entitled “ Delphi Phænicizantes, &c.” published at Oxford, 1655, in 8vo. And “ Homerus 'Epaitwv; sive comparatio Homeri cum scriptoribus sacris quoad Normam loquendi.” In the preface he declares that it is not his intention to make any comparison between the sacred writers and their opinions and Homer, but only of their idioms and ways of speaking. To this book is added Hesiodus 'Ouncišwv; wherein he shews how Hesiod expresses himself very much after the same manner with Homer, Oxford, 1658, 8vo. He designed likewise to publish a discourse concerning the Greek particles; but he was prevented by sickness from completing it; and another treatise concerning the best use of the Greek and Latin poets. Freytag has bestowed an article on his treatise on Homer's style.'

BOGDEN, or BOGDANUS (MARTIN), a favoured pu. pil of T. Bartholine, and strenuous defender of his faine and opinions, was born at Dresden, about the year 1630. After visiting France, England, and other parts of Europe, to improve himself in knowledge, he took the degree of doctor in medicine at Basle in Swisserland, in 1652, and at the end of four or five years, passed principally with Bartholine, to whom he was strongly attached, he settled at Bern. His works are principally controversial, defending the priority of the discovery of the lymphatics by Bartholine, against Rudbeck the Swede, who claimed it; and who, if he did not discover them, Haller says, has the merit of having more fully and accurately described them than Bartholine had done. Bogden, in this contest, displayed much learning, but equal roughness and ill-huinour. The titles of his works are, “ Rudbekii insidiæ structä vasis lymphaticis Thomæ Bartholini,” 4to, and “ Apologia pro vasis lymphaticis Bartholini, adversus insidias secundo

structas ab Olao Rudbek.” Haffniæ, 1654, 12mo. . “ Si. meonis Seth, de alimentorum facultatibus," Gr. and Lat. 1658, 8vo. “ Observationes Medicæ ad Thomam Bath." The observations, twelve in number, are published in the “ Culter Anatomicus” of Lyser; Copenh. 1665.'

BOHADIN, or BOHA-EDDYN, an Arabian historian of great note, born March 1145, was celebrated for his Life of Saladin, in whose court he flourished in the twelfth century. What makes his history particularly valuable, is his being contemporary to the events he writes; and his being also a favourite of Saladin's, constantly about his person, and high in office. He is very accurate in his account of the crusades, and Saladin's taking of Jerusa. lem; and mentions our Richard I. who made such a fi. gure as Saladin's antagonist. The accurate Schultens has published a very excellent edition in folio, with much erudition, Leyden, 1732 ; the same was published in 1755, but only with a new title of that date. It has been observed by an able critic, that this bistorian, Abulpharagius, and Abulfeda, bear much resemblance to Plutarch; as they have enriched their histories with so many striking anecdotes and curious information on the progress and state of literature in their respective ages and countries.

BOHN, or BOHNIUS (John), a physician of consi. derable reputation in the seventeenth century, was born at Leipsic in 16.40, and began his studies there, and at Jena. In 1663 be travelled in Denmark, Holland, England, and France, and returned by the way of Swisserland in 1665. The following year he took his degree of M. D. and in 1668 was promoted to the anatomical chair at Leipsic. In 1691 • he was appointed city-physician, and in 1691 professor of

therapeutics. In 1700 he was dean of the faculty, and after a prosperous career, both as a physician and writer, died in 1718. His principal works are, 1.“ De Alkali et Acidi insufficientia pro principiorum corporum naturalium munere gerendo," Leipsic, 1675, 8vo. 2.“ Dissertationes chemico-physicæ,” ibid. 1685, 40, 1696, 8vo. 3.“ Me. ditationes physico-chemicæ de aeris in sublunaria influxu," ibid. 1678, 8vo; 1685, 4to. 4. “ De duumviratu hypochondriorum,” ibid. 1689, 4to. 5.“ Observatio atque ex, perimenta circa usum spiritus vini externum in hæmorragiis sistendis," Leipsic, 1683, 410. 6. “ Exercitationes phy.

siologicæ, ibid. 1680, 1636, 1697 and 1710, 4to. 7. “ De officio medici duplici, clinini nimirum ac forensis," Leipsic, 1689, 1704, 4 vols. 4to, a work of great merit. 8.“ De renunciatione vulnerum lethalium examen,” ibid. 1689, 8vo, often reprinted. Bohn, although not arriving at the con: clusions of more modern and scientific physicians, frequently approaches them through the medium of sound and experimental knowledge. These last mentioned works on medicine, as connected with legal evidence, are particularly valuable.'
