Human Skin Covers Book At Harvard

6 posts in this topic

Experts at Harvard have confirmed a 19th century book held in one of the prestigious university's libraries is bound in human skin.

A series of tests by scientists and conservators on Houghton Library's copy of the French writer Arsene Houssaye's Des destinees de l'ame concluded with 99.9% certainty that the binding material "is of human origin".

According to the library, the novelist presented the volume, described as "a meditation on the soul and life after death", to one of his book-loving friends.
