Boston: Otis, Broaders & Company, 1838. Item #016690

180p. Shaw & Shoemaker 52596. The North American Review, p. 495-496 noted it was a warm firsthand account of travels in the Meditterrean world. Contains the errata printed on p. 8. the chapter on "Burying Alive" speaks of the common fear and gives cases of those who indeed had been the unfortunate victims of this inadvertent presumption of death. The cases he provides are anecdotal but did occur as the writer notes when the apparent deceased came to life either during autopsies or in one case when a grave robber sought a valuable ring.. Oriignal boards, cloth spine. A fair copy.

Price: $65.00
