On the Writings of the Insane

On the Writings of the Insane is a peculiar inquiry into the mind of hospitalized and medicated patients at the Cambridgeshire County Asylum. It was written by the Medical Superintendent G. Mackenzie and published in 1870. The book seeks to decipher the patients handwritten notes and drawings, and contrary to what one might believe he […]

Geometrical Psychology or the Science of Representation

Geometrical Psychology or the Science of Representation is the result of lifelong studies by the independent spiritual thinker and mathematician Benjamin Betts. I have not read more than the foreword, but this is something different. Benjamin Betts understood evolution as the evolution of man’s consciousness. He attempted to represent the successive stages of evolution by means of symbolical […]

The Illuminated Sketchbook of Stephan Scriber

The Illuminated Sketchbook of Stephan Scriber anno 1494. This is a surprisingly well preserved sketchbook by Stephan Scriber, a monk from South-West Germany. This book is considered a playground for ideas for his work as illustrator. This gives an interesting insight into how ideas and layouts for illuminated manuscripts were tried out and skills developed in production of late-gothic […]

Bizarre Friday on Holybooks.com

I often come across some more obscure works which I share here occasionally. These books are not related to the overall topic of this website, but you have been warned before, and I can see that books such as the Voynich Manuscript, Codex Serahinianus, and Gadsby are among the most downloaded. I know you like them, […]

The Urantia Papers – The Urantia Book or The Fifth Epochal Revelation

The Urantia Papers also know as The Urantia Book or The Fifth Epochal Revelation is a long and very strange book. It is said to be written sometime between 1924 and 1955 somewhere around Chicago. The author is unknown and there are many speculations about how it was written from sleeping mediums to plain materialization. The story itself […]

Bizarre Tuesday on HolyBooks.com: The Voynich Manuscript and CODEX Serahinianus

The Voynich Manuscript and CODEX Serahinianus. Longtime friends of HolyBooks.com will recognize that I have a weakness for the more peculiar works and I post them here regardless of their spiritual attributes in admiration of human creativity. Today I have two of these goodies for you and if you are into this, you will not […]

The Bitter Book of Anger by Manflesh

The Bitter Book of Anger by Manflesh is hard to get a hold on. It starts out citing the author himself: “Enlightenment is just something unenlightened people made up,” and it goes on following a 70-year old zen-guru´s travel through USA and Mexico. This book is different, read it for fun or for the sake […]

Gadsby by Ernest Vincent Wright – 50.000 words without the letter “e”

This bizarre book, Gadsby, is a lipogram written in 1939 by the american Ernest Vincent Wright. The concept is the total absence of the letter “e” from all sentences on all pages. An article in the Oshkosh Daily in 1937 wrote that the manuscript was “amazingly smooth. No halting parts. A continuity of plot and almost classic clarity obtains.”  Wright […]

Mushrooms Russia and History

Mushrooms Russia and History is addressed to those who love mushrooms, who love the whole rich world of wild mushrooms in the same way that many love the flowers of the field and the birds of the air. “Our public is certainly one of the smallest in the English-speaking world, but no matter. We invite […]
