So I am eating my lunch, and come across this tidbit about books bound
in skin:

Then I stop off at a local bookstore and there sits a 1st B&L ed of
Macy's "Spirit of American Literature" (no DJ) with the "skin" endpapers
just like John Peterson described (& illustrated above).  So I guess
John's book is not the only one!  I did not buy the book ($7.50) so if
someone wants to contact the store, email me personally and I will pass
along their phone number.
