Plastic Wax Factory Vol 05 46 - THE PNAKOTIC MANUSCRIPTS

THE PNAKOTIC MANUSCRIPTS. Book of uncertain age and origin. It has been said that the Great Race of Yith wrote the first five chapters and preserved them at their City of the Archives known as Pnakotus, from which the book derived its name. Others have given the Elder Things the credit, due to the similarities between the Manuscripts and the Eltdown Shards. What is certain is that the people of Lomar preserved this knowledge and passed it on to Hyperborea. There it was rewritten in the tongue of that land, and a secretive cult preserved it until historical times. As time went on, different scribes added on to the Manuscripts; two definite additions, one from the Voormis and another from a Zobnarian scribe, have been identified. The first portions of the manuscript are written with a curious sort of cuneiform and dot-group glyphs, which bear resemblance to many patterns carved in stone that have been found throughout the world. (They are especially similar to the fifty-foot symbol found at the peak of Mount Hatheg-Kla after Barzai's disappearance.) Some linguists say that humans are completely unable to decipher these versions, but a number of individuals claim to have read or translated the book. The Manuscripts originally appeared in scroll form. All editions of this version are said to be lost, though one may still exist in the Temple of the Elder Ones in Ulthar and some parchment fragments at Miskatonic University may also come from this source. Greek and English translations (the former is known as the Pnakotica) were made in later times. Although it is rumored that an anonymous translator published an English edition in the late 15th century, others hold that this document has only been circulated in the original manuscript form. One source has it that the copy in Ulthar is the last in existence,  but other copies have been found at Miskattonic University, the University of Tokyo, the Providence Church of Starry Wisdom, and the New York Public Library. An expurgated photostat is held at the British Museum. A few commentaries, including The Pnakotic Manuscripts: A New Revised Study (1922), Werner's A Study of Pnakotic Writings (1938) and Schwarzwalder's Analysis of the Manuscript of the Pnakotoi  (1895), are available to scholars. This volume contains information about the Great Race of Yith, the nature of Chaugnar Faugn and Yibb-Tstll, the journey of Sansu to the top of Mount Hatheg-Kla, the fall of Zobna, the battles of the people of Lomar against the Voormis, the knowledge of the ghouls, rituals of Rhan-Tegoth's worship, and the location of Xiurhn. A map within provides the locations of Leng, Yian-Ho, and other mythical places, though much research must be done to establish how it corresponds to modern landmarks. It is said that the Pnakotic Manuscripts have some sort of Guardian, and those who would read this work must pay the Guardian's price. This Guardian may be entirely fanciful or merely symbolic, but the reader should beware.
