History

Origins

Before humanity started bounding books, Shuma-Gorath, Skelos, Vathelos and others created iron-bound books.[7]

It was also stated that the Iron-Bound Book of Skelos had been compiled by Vathelos the Blind.[1][8]

The Iron-Bound Book of Skelos (sometimes presented as the Iron-Bound Books of Skelos)[2] contained the most fearsome magic-lore on Earth, secrets from wizards already old in the early days of Atlantis.[9]

Hyborian Age

During the Hyborian Age, only a few copies of the Book of Skelos were known to exist, all closely guarded.

Content

The Iron-Bound Book of Skelos contained the most fearsome magic-lore on Earth, secrets from wizards already old in the early days of Atlantis.[9]

It described the grim Monsters of the Marsh.[14]
