New Morbid Terminology: Corpse Medicine

Morbid but very interesting. Redheaded man, coincidence? Rh negative type blood? Maybe? “Take the fresh, unspotted cadaver of a redheaded man (because in them the blood is thinner and the flesh hence more excellent) aged about twenty-four, who has been executed and died a violent death. Let the corpse lie one day and night in the sun and moon- but the weather must be good. Cut the flesh in pieces and sprinkle it with myrrh and just a little aloe. Then soak it in spirits of wine for several days, hang it up for 6-10 hours… Thus they will be similar to smoked meat, and will not stink.”
