Macabre Book Discovery

"A 300-year old book bound in human skin has been found in a city centre street in Headrow, Leeds, police said. Officers belive the historic ledger may have been dumped following a burglary. Much of the text is in French, and it was not uncommon around the time of the French Revolution for books to be covered in human skin."
