THESAURUS OF HORROR;

OR, THE

Charnel-House Explored!!

BEING AN HISTORICAL AND PHILANTHROPICAL INQUISITION

MADE FOR

THE QUONDAM-BLOOD OF ITS INHABITANTS!

BY A CONTEMPLATIVE

DESCENT INTO THE UNTIMELY GRAVE!

SHEWING, BY A NUMBER OF AWFUL FACTS THAT HAVE TRANSPIRED AS WELL AS
FROM PHILOSOPHICAL INQUIRY, THE RE-ANIMATING POWER OF

FRESH EARTH IN CASES OF SYNCOPE,

AND THE EXTREME CRIMINALITY OF

HASTY FUNERALS:

WITH THE SUREST METHODS OF ESCAPING

&c.

THE INEFFABLE HORRORS OF PREMATURE INTERMENT!!

THE

FRIGHTFUL MYSTERIES

OF THE

DARK AGES LAID OPEN,

WHICH NOT ONLY DELUGED THE ROMAN EMPIRE, BUT TRIUMPHED OVER

All Christendom for a Thousand Years!

ENTOMBING THE SCIENCES, AND SUBSEQUENTLY

REVIVING

ALL

THE

IGNORANCE AND SUPERSTITION OF

GOTHIC BARBARITY!

BY

JOHN SNART,

Φιλάνθρωπο,

K

AUTHOR OF THE MATHEMATICAL PRINCIPLES OF MENSURATION, &c.

σε Κουφη σκιά, καὶ ατμίς εσιν ανδρῶν βία.”

"I could a tale unfold, whose lightest word would harrow up thy soul," &c.

SHAKSPEARE'S HAMLET.

But if the fertilizing earth restore
The dubious fragment of a borrow'd life,
Can man's most desp'rate scuffle force the grave,
Or must he, grappling, bathe himself in blood,
And burst his eye-balls in the vain attempt!!!
