A book, L'Idolatrie Huguenotre (Huguenot Idolatry), which was published in 1608 in Leon, France by Louis Richeome, a Roman Catholic who attacked the Huguenots and Protestantism, exists at the University of Memphis, Tennessee. It is bound as an anthropodermic cover with the pages made of rag paper, the common type used during the 17th century.

The process of using anthropodermic bookbinding was common during the 17th century. While the anthropodermic binding resembles a leather substance more than skin these days, it still has a very odd texture.

The process of using anthropodermic covers lasted up until the middle of the 18th century.

European countries, and some in the Far East, were the main cultures that used the anthropodermic process, but is is not known to have been used in the United States.

It is said that anthropodermic binding was very common, mostly because human skin was inexpensive and widely available.

Someone has also mentioned another anthropodermic bound book in the Harvard Law Library titled Practicarum Quaestionum Circa Leges Regias Hispaniae.
