The uncertainty of the signs of death : and the danger of precipitate interments and dissections, demonstrated, I. from the known laws of the animal oeconomy, II. from the structure of the parts of the human body, and III. from a great variety of amusing and well-attested instances of persons who have return'd to life in their coffins, in their graves, under the hands of the surgeons, and after they had remain'd apparently dead for a considerable time in the water ; with proper directions, both for preventing such accidents, and repairing the misfortunes brought upon the constitution by them ; to the whole is added, a curious and entertaining account of the funeral solemnities of many ancient and modern nations, exhibiting the precautions they made use of to ascertain the certainty of death ; illustrated with copper plates.
