Purpose: Imparting knowledge

Written by Professor Abdullah Nightingale, this encyclopedia explains and describes in great detail everything about Zamonia and its environs. Having been bacteriologically transmitted to Bluebear's brain, he quotes many entries from it in his narrative, The 13 1/2 Lives of Captain Bluebear.
