Premature Burial and how it may be prevented, 1896

An essay about the premature burial


Premature Burial and how it may be prevented - London 1896

With special reference to trance, catalepsy, and other forms of suspended animation.

Important treatise on premature burial and how to prevent it. Rich with real-life events, like the one below. 


"From the Times, May 6, 1874 - The Messager du Midi relates the following dreadful story :- A young married woman residing at Salon (Bouches du Rhône) died shortly after her confinement in August last. The medical man, who was hastily summoned when her illness assumed a dangerous form, certified her death, and recommended immediate burial in consequence of the intense heat then prevailing, and six hours afterwards the body was interred. A few days since, the husband having resolved to re-marry, the mother of his late wife desired to have her daughter's remains removed to her native town, Marseilles. When the vault was opened a horrible sight presented itself. The corpse lay in the middle of the vault, with dishevelled hair and the linen torn to pieces. It evidently had been gnawed in her agony by the unfortunate victim. The shock which the dreadful spectacle caused to the mother has been so great that fears are entertained for her reason, if not for her life."

The books are all handmade: printed, trimmed, sewn, and positioned in the press for the first impression. The paper protrusions at the margins are hand trimmed and leveled. The head and foot are sewn with the "capitellum" and finally the cover is prepared. After this, if provided, the paper and cover are aged by hand with special colors. Once the book is finished, it is left to "rest" for at least half a day, packaged, and shipped. In short, it takes time...! :)

To obtain a well-made book, it takes time, sometimes several days of work, but you must take into account that when you place an order, there are several orders in the production queue before you, and this number is variable. That's why we always estimate a variable delivery period that can range from 4 up to a maximum of 8 weeks to make your order and ship it. But we can say that the 8 weeks are reached during peak demand periods, between November and December, sometimes between June and July.

We usually close for 20 days in August (in Italy the temperatures make life and work impossible!) and usually between December 20 and January 7.

That's why if you have special needs (birthday gifts, Christmas, etc.), please contact us before placing your order to get an estimate on delivery!


Les livres sont tous fabriqués à la main: imprimés, rognés, cousus, et positionnés dans la presse pour la première impression. Les protubérances de papier aux marges sont rognées à la main et nivelées. La tête et le pied sont cousus avec le "capitellum" et enfin la couverture est préparée. Après cela, si prévu, le papier et la couverture sont vieillis à la main avec des couleurs spéciales. Une fois le livre terminé, il est laissé à "reposer" pendant au moins une demi-journée, emballé et expédié. En bref, cela prend du temps...! :)

Pour obtenir un livre bien fait, cela prend du temps, parfois plusieurs jours de travail, mais vous devez prendre en compte que lorsque vous passez une commande, il y a plusieurs commandes dans la file d'attente de production avant vous, et ce nombre est variable. C'est pourquoi nous estimons toujours une période de livraison variable pouvant aller de 4 jusqu'à un maximum de 8 semaines pour remplir votre commande et l'expédier. Mais nous pouvons dire que les 8 semaines sont atteintes pendant les périodes de forte demande, entre novembre et décembre, parfois entre juin et juillet.

Nous fermons habituellement pendant 20 jours en août (en Italie, les températures rendent la vie et le travail impossibles!) et habituellement entre le 20 décembre et le 7 janvier.

C'est pourquoi si vous avez des besoins spéciaux (cadeaux d'anniversaire, de Noël, etc.), veuillez nous contacter avant de passer votre commande pour obtenir une estimation de la livraison !
