There is a higher justice in the fact that every man is mortal – the end of earthly existence is guaranteed for the righteous and the sinners, the weak and the powerful, the rich and the poor. The instinct of self-preservation inevitably leads each of us to the same question: to be or not to be after death. That is the inevitable death – the end or a new beginning? There are many interesting books on the subject, and one of them is "Comforting thoughts about life and death." Very popular in Europe, this book was published in Russia in 1814, under the title "Treasure of sweetest consolation against the terrors of death or the most graceful way to die in peace".
In the design edition of the fragments of the engravings of Albrecht dürer and letters by Hans Holbein the Younger.
