Last week we stumbled upon an early c17 Spanish treatise --Juan Gutierrez's
Practicarum quaestionum circa leges regias Hispaniae liber II (Madrid : Juan de
 
la Cuesta, 1605-1606)-- with the following inscription on the last page of
text :
 
        The bynding of this booke is all that remains of my deare frend
        Jonas Wright, who was flayed alive by the Wavuma
 
The College of Physicians of Philadelphia has at least four anthropodermic
bindings, including one from a sailor's skin with a tattoo still visible.
It seems that a 19th century South Jersey doc, Stoughton Hough, would tan
the hides of derelicts in a chamber pot and use the leather for ... well,
where was Clarice Starling when we really needed her, eh?

I think that this is one of the books discussed in Thompson's
pamphlet on anthropodermic bindings,
 
In footnote 38, he writes
 
   Dr. Eugene H. Wilson, director of the University of Colorado
   Libraries, ferretted out another example of human skin
   dressed like
   parchment, cited as Item 351 in LIst 24 of Paul F. Veith,
   4117 Dryades Street, New Orleans 15:"Gutierrez (Ionne),
   Practicarum quaestionum circa leges regias hispaniae primae
   partis nouae collectionis regiae libri I. et II . . . . cum
   duplici indice, altero legum regni, altero materiarum.
   Quarto. (Vellum?) (34), 794(1) pp. Madrid, 1606. $42.50."
   A manuscript note at the end claims that the binding is the
   skin of one John Wright. However, the custodians of the
   Harvard University Law Library, which purchased this volume,
   have been unable to identify John Wright or to substantiate
   the allegation that the vellum is of human origin).

Perhaps the most amusingly related anecdote about human skin bindings
is in Dard Hunter's _My Life with Paper._ He tells of a young widow
who commissioned a memorial volume from the Roycrofters when he worked
there, which was bound in her late husband's skin. He later sees a
notice of her remarriage, and wonders if her new husband sees himself
as Volume 2.

Can anyone point to an authenticated case of such a binding? (ie by
other than anectdotal evidence). My instinct is
to be extremely skeptical, my principal qualm being that isn't easy
producing a functional leather under the best of circumstances, and
obviously this would be a less than optimal situation for the
tanner/parchment maker to work under: a small, thin skin, and no extras
to practice on.
 
onward,
Walter Henry

My apologies to all for yesterday's incomplete message. In the middle of
typing the query, my terminal shut down, not to be resurrectedtil this
morning. Somehow --these things are still mysteries to me-- my message
got sent off to Exlibris anyhow.
 
I'm more interested in uncovering information relating to the people
mentioned in the inscription in our volume, in the hopes of either
verifying/disproving the facts as stated. Human skin bindings I consider
an abomination; things which --when they happen to be in a collection-- we
have the unfortunate responsibility to preserve.
 
The complete inscription in our copy of Gutierrez's Practicarum (Madrid, 1605-
1606) is :

The town museum at Bury Saint Edmunds in Suffolk, England, has book
bound in the skin of William (?) Corder, who murdered Maria Martin in
the Red Barn. The same display case also contains one of his ears
which I rather think lends authenticity to the binding, to say nothing
of the pistols and knives with which he did the deed.

Yesterday's Washington Post carried a brief blurb taken from the wire services
that might be of interest to readers of this group:
 
SPRINGFIELD, Ore.--Donal Russell's last wish was to have his body skinned and
his hide tanned like leather. Over funeral directors' objections, his widow is
asking a judge to help her hohor the request.
  Russell, a poet and fly fisherman who ran a fly-tying business called
 Russell's
Bug House, died Feb. 3 at age 62. His will, signed Dec. 17, directed that his
body "be skinned from the head down and tanned for the purpose of face binding
volumes of my verse."
 
I can't help wonder if there is a precedent for preserving one's poetry in
this manner. Let's see, they resulting volumes might be titled "Poems For
The Thin-Skinned," or "Hide and Go Seek," or even (in an English mode) "Ten
Poems for a Tanner."

I thought I'd respond to Dave Gants call for precedents
 
for preserving one's writings in a binding made of
 
one's own skin. The Boston Athenaeum has such a
 
volume in its collection.
 
 
 
James Allen--alias George Walton, alia Jonas Pierce,
 
alias James York, alias Burley Grove was a burglar,
 
bank robber, horse thief and highwayman when, in
 
1833 he attacked John Fenno Jr. from Springfield
 
on the Salem, Massachusetts, Turnpike with the
 
intent to rob. Fenno resisted his attacker and
 
was shot, but saved by a suspender buckle. Allen
 
fled, was caught and sent to prison where he wrote
 
a boastful autobiographical account of his life
 
of crime called _The Highwayman_. Admiring Fenno's
 
bravery he asked that Fenno be given a copy of
 
his book bound in the author's skin.
 
 
 
On July 17, 1837 upon Allen's death, Massachusetts
 
General Hospital "accepted his body for anatomical
 
and pathological studies" and removed enough skin
 
to provide the covering of his book. Bookbinder
 
Peter Low, above the Old Corner Book Store treated
 
skin to look like gray deerskin and edged it with
 
gold tooling. It is embossed with the Latin
 
inscription "Hic Liber Waltonis Cute Compactus Est"
 
(This book by Walton bound in his own skin).
 
 
 
It was donated to the Athenaeum by a descendant of
 
John Fenno.
 
 
 
Our archives provide the following:
 
 
 
1. Postcard from Margaret L. Hayes, Feb. 20, 1944
 
from Library of Congress stating that there is
 
a [unidentified] book in the Rare Book collections
 
at LC. Another letter from Frederick R. Goff,
 
Acting Chief, Rare Book Collection, March 9, 1944
 
states that they have (included in the Vollbehr
 
purchase in 1930) _Scrutinium Scriptuarum_ of
 
Paulus de Sancta Maria, believed to have been printed
 
at Strassburg by Johann Mentelin before 1470. Dr.
 
Vollbehr's note on a card that accompanied the
 
gift reads "The old wooden boards were covered
 
with human skin in the 19th century." Goff states
 
that they had not been able to verify this.
 
 
 
2. An excerpt from _The Book Fancier_ (London:
 
Sampson Low, Marston, Searle & Rivington, 1886),
 
p. 122:
 
 
 
"A Russian poet is said lately to have offered to
 
the lady of his affections a collection of his
 
sonnets bound in leather--human leather--which
 
the poet himself furnished! On falling from his
 
horse one day he broke his thigh, and being ob-
 
liged to undergo amputation, he had the skin
 
carefully tanned and reserved from some purpose
 
of the kind."
 
 
 
3. A letter from NYPL, 18 Feb. 1944 citing
 
a very thin article in the Dolphin, no. 4 (Fall
 
1940), p. 90-92 mentioning several books in libraries,
 
particularly the "Philadelphia Hospital Library" as
 
having once belonged to Dr. Stockton-Hough of Trenton,
 
N.J.
 
 
 
4. Photocopy of an article, "Bookbindings of Human
 
Skin" by Albert Bouckaert from _Sexology_ (March
 
1949), p. 480-481 which has an illustration of
 
the Allen book owned by the Athenaeum and citations
 
of about five other works.

Re: Books bound in human skin
 
There are a few examples of books bound in human skin
here in the Library of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia.
The library of John Stockton Hough (referred to in an earlier
message) was purchased by the College in 1900, and the remains
of the library of Philadelphia General Hospital are also now
here at the College.

I read in the paper over the weekend that some poet/fisherman in
California died recently and stipulated in his will that he wanted
his corpse skinned and used to bind volumes of his poetry. Funeral
directors in the state have sued to stop this and the family is
trying to see that his wishes are met.

While we're on the subject, can someone confirm or deny for me something I
was told when I was a student at the University of Akron (Ohio)--that the
Cleveland Public Library owns a copy of the Koran bound in human skin?
The story I was told is similar to the one posted on this list; that this
particular Koran was owned by a devout believer who instructed that when
he died a piece of his skin should be tanned and used to cover the book.
 
The Special Collections department owns a New Testament bound in the
early 19th century, with a notation from the binder that he bound the book
in the skin of a favorite dog.

A local firm here has a book that has pretty heavy documentation that the
spine label is made from the skin of an African-American. Even gives the
name of the local firm that tanned the skin and the provenance of the skin
itself.
 
One of our trustees is a dermatologist, and when I discussed how one would
document the nature of the spine label, he said that it might be difficult
but not impossible. He suggested that a pathologist could probably
determine the truth of the matter.

It's pretty simple, really. Examine your skin with a magnifying glass
and then examine the questioned skin. If the follicle patterns match,
its human skin. Follicle patterns are species specific.

Since we're on the rather unsavory topic of human skin bindings, I just
couldn't resist mentioning something I came across recently while
cataloging the following:
 
Smith, Keith A., Structure of the Visual Book, Rev. and expanded ed.
     Fairport, NY : Sigma Foundation ; Rochester, NY : Distributed by
     K. Smith, 1992.
 
The author, a creator of artists' books and author of several books on book
design, included a reprint of the following notice (on p. 225) which he called
"Book Number 84" and originally published in 1981.
 
"When I was a student I was repulsed and attracted by a display at the
Field Museum of a cross-section of a cadaver, sandwiched and sealed between
sheets of glass filled with formaldehyde.
 
"Upon my death my body should be frozen, sliced vertically with a band
saw into one inch thick sections. Each of the fifteen slices should be
sealed between two pieces of double weight glass, 5'6" x 12". A narrow
metal frame should seal each panel which contains a slice of me, the
remainder of the area of each panel filled with formaldehyde.
 
"Each of the fifteen sections should be placed in order, hinged one to
the next along the back side. The "book" should be stood in the corner,
slightly opened, in the entrance room to my house, to be renamed the
Keith Smith Memorial Library, chosen over the name the Keith Smith
Living Library."
 
I guess this would be a piece of posthumous performance art of sorts. But
this whole discussion seems more appropriate for the Halloween season instead
of Valentine's Day....

As I have been followed the discussion on books bound in human skin with an
occasional chuckle and quite a few grimaces, I have been amazed that no one
has mentioned a title that surely drew many of my generation into the fold of
Rare Books and Special Collections Librarianship. It was published when I was
in my teens and I savored every word of it, thinking "move over Ripley." May I
refer my colleagues to Walter Hart Blumenthal's "Bookmen's Bedlam : an olio of
literary oddities" (New Brunswick, N.J. : Rutgers University Press, 1955)
which contains a whole chapter entitled "Not for the thin-skinned" as well as
bibliographical references on the topic under discussion.
I refrain from futher comments.

Everett,
Not to put too fine a point on it, but there exists the possibility that
one may, with some difidence, exercise color perception to this exercise.
 
My personal experience concerns Caucasian skin, but I do believe that
should a negroid (not terribly PC here) skin part come under the lens
that I would be able to identify it as human. I do not believe that it
would be possible for me (or anyone else) to identify the tribe;
caucasion or otherwise.
 
Sick and amusing dialog aside, I trust that your disaster is resolving
itself in a manner consistent with heading out of an evening for a home brew.

without home brew; but brew pubs are close by.

A year or so ago, I think, there was a discussion of Human Skin
Bindings. I saved the messages, archived them, and they are now safely
in storage about 5000 miles away. Can someone remind me of the one sight
with a pretty well varified human skin binding and of the book that deals
with the myths of these things? I tried keywords on the British Library
Catalogue and came up with nothing.
Sorry to bother the whole list with this, but without the
archives....with a poor memory...and very little of my active mind
left, I remain,

The bibliography of this topic is covered by Brenni in a section on
"Other Materials," #158ff., and by Schmidt-Kuensemueller under
"Einbandkuriositaeten," #7109ff., and to a lesser extent under
"Einbandmaterialien," #7429ff.
 
I have an archive of the earlier ExLibris thread and a file of other
material. I will share this information with anyone who can satisfy
my curiosity about the nature of their interest in this matter.
