Joshua Neds-Fox The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet

"In the antechamber of Bottles outside the stateroom, a wall of fifty or sixty glass demijohns, wired tight against earthquakes, exhibit creatures from the company's once-vast empire. Preserved from decay by alcohol, big bladder, and lead, they warn not so much that all flesh perishes—what sane adult forgets that truth for long?—but that immortality comes at a steep price."
