1900's Undertakers Supply Catalog on CD
A most unusual and intersting catalogs for fans of the unusual! A rare catalog from the early 1900's offering a variety of embalming
supplies for undertakers and morticians. Plenty of great ilustrations and information on this unusual occupation.
Embalming, in most modern cultures, is the art and science of temporarily preserving human remains to forestall decomposition and to make
them suitable for display at a funeral. The three goals of embalming are thus sanitization, presentation and preservation (or restoration) of a
dead body to achieve this effect.
The last 20 pages or so provide interesting information on the art of embalming, a complete early How-To Guide, so to speak.......... The
catalog includes everything ~ embalming solutions, preperation goods, disenfectents, attire, caskets, tools, work tables, lifting devices, and
basic funeral home supplies.
