Pettigrew: Chronicles of the Tombs

Chronicles of the Tombs by Thomas Joseph Pettigrew (1857)

As the subtitle explains, the book is "a select collection of epitaphs, preceded by an essay on epitaphs and other monumental inscriptions, with incidental observations on sepulchral antiquities." This is a fascinating volume in the Bohn's Library series; the Latin epitaphs contained here are accompanied by English translations.
