Essai sur les combustions humaines produites par un long abus des liqueurs spiritueuses. Pierre-Aimé Lair.
Essai sur les combustions humaines produites par un long abus des liqueurs spiritueuses.
Paris: Chez Gabon, Libraire, pres l'Ecole de medicine, 1800. 100p. 18cm. Plain green wrappers. Covers slightly soiled; portion spine paper missing at the foot of the spine; small, circular whole through the bottom free endpaper; former library copy with notation in pencil on the verso of the title page. In very good condition. Dickens wrote about the phenomena of spontaneous human combustion in Bleak House and cites Lair's work. Burning interest in the event increased through the 19th century and continues to ignite the imaginations of believers who point to documented cases of SHC since, at least, the 15th century. Lair places the blame for SHC on the abuse of alcohol, "believing that alcoholics do not urinate as often as non-alcoholics, Lair asserted that alcohol stays within the body. Ultimately, the victim’s “muscles even are impregnated with alcoholic substances.” Overweight alcoholics were especially susceptible. While a drunk’s muscles might absorb a considerable amount of liquor, the fat of drinkers is particularly “soft, flabby, [and] oily” especially in women." [ultimatehistory project].
