Yes, we do have books believed to be bound in human skin.

There are three anthropodermic books that have been suspected at Harvard. For more information, please see this blog post from the Houghton Library and this article from the Harvard Crimson.

One of the three, the volume at the Harvard Law School, has been conclusively proven NOT to be bound in human skin. Please see the Law School Library Blog post for details.
