First Edition. Garrison-Morton 1355. Bohn's writings show him to have been "an expert on the then new anatomical and physiological discoveries . . . one of the innovators in physiology who completely forsook the Galenic tradition" (DSB).

In his Circulus anatomico-physiologicus, dedicated to Malpighi, Bohn stated that the reflex action was an entirely material and mechanical phenomenon, and showed that the nerves do not contain a "nerve juice." The DSB gives 1680 as the date of Bohn's work, probably in error, as OCLC cites no edition printed in that year.
