...at least according to the website of the publisher, Kates-Boylston.

I started late to the series, with Volume 5, & showed up here looking for the rest. These are articles reprinted from K-B publications "American Funeral Director" & "American Cemetery," so not at all _National Enquirer_ tabloid gawking.

The stories are informative, well-researched historical moments, told in a calm yet sympathetic manner -- which, considering the funerary trade, is totally appropriate. In most biographic articles & programs, going from demise to burial takes maybe two minutes or a page, & even long books don't give much more space except for the most sensational of incidents. Here, you have the final quirks in the life of someone who -- despite fame or power or wealth -- was nevertheless as mortal as anyone else.

If you showed up looking for this book, don't give up! You may have to go to an actual seller of used books, rather than the Amazon Department Store, but it's worth finding.
