Pnakotic fragments

See: Pnakotic Manuscripts.

Pnakotic Manuscript(s)

A set of esoteric texts of great antiquity. Also known as the Pnakotic fragments.


The Pnakotic Manuscripts are said to be from distant and frozen Lomar [HPL Other 128; HPL Kadath 310]. In ancient Lomar, the Polaris narrator studied the Pnakotic Manuscripts for long hours each day. [HPL Polaris 22]

However, it appears that some portions of the Pnakotic Manuscripts predate Lomar. Thus,

    • Some frightful portions of the Pnakotic Manuscripts are too ancient to be read. [Other 131; Kadath 312]
    • A few daring mystics have hinted at a pre-Pleistocene origin for the fragmentary Pnakotic Manuscripts [HPL Mountains 29]. Prof. Dyer said that the Pnakotic Manuscripts have pre-human implications [45].
    • The Pnakotic Manuscripts are alleged to be pre-human [HPL Aeons 268].
    • Parts of the text of the frightful Pnakotic Manuscripts survive physically and directly from the time of the Great Race [HPL Time 389].


The most ancient portions of the Pnakotic Manuscripts include a curious symbol that was later found carved on Hatheg-Kla after Barzai scaled the peak and was taken by the Other Gods. [Other 131; Kadath 312]

After using the Silver Key to reach the First Gateway, Randolph Carter recognized it partly from hints in the Pnakotic fragments [HPL Gates 430].

The eighth Pnakotic fragment includes a long ritual, concerning things that existed in the north before the land of Lomar, and even before humanity. Information from that ritual lead George Rogers to the lost city where he found Rhan-Tegoth. [HPL Museum 221]

The Pnakotic Manuscripts mention Tsathogguah [HPL Whisperer 254].

The Pnakotic Manuscripts include whispers of Kadath in the Cold Waste [Mountains 71].

While the Polaris narrator fell under the spell of slumber from the Pole Star, he struggled to recall some relevant lore of the skies from the Pnakotic Manuscripts . [Polaris 23]

Dyer concluded that the crinoid Old Ones were the originals of the fiendish elder myths that were hinted about in the Pnakotic Manuscripts [Mountains 59].

The Pnakotic Manuscripts tell with fright of Sansu, who climbed Hatheg-Kla in the dreamlands and found only wordless ice and rock [Other 131].

Surviving Copies

George Rogers claimed to have read the prehistoric Pnakotic fragments [Museum 217].

Alonzo Typer read from the text of the Pnakotic Manuscripts in the library of the deserted van der Heyl house, and regretted having come there [HPL Diary 311].

Robert Blake found a copy of the Pnakotic Manuscripts in the deserted church of the Starry Wisom sect in Providence [HPL Haunter 100].

In the dreamlands, Barzai the Wize was familiar with the Pnakotic Manuscripts [Other 128]. According to a zoog, the Pnakotic Manuscripts were borne into the land of dreams when the hairy cannibal Gnophkehs conquered Lomar. The last copy of the Pnakotic Manuscripts lingers in Ulthar, beyond the river Skai [Kadath 310].

Tony Alwyn, a librarian at Miskatonic University, knew something of the weird knowledge hidden in the Pnakotic Manuscripts [AWD Beyond2 164]. A recent case involving Ithaqua was clearly related to the mythology so horribly narrated in the Pnakotic Manuscripts [AWD Beyond2 172].

Laban Shrewsbury spoke to Andrew Phelan of various esoteric texts, including the Pnakotic Manuscripts [AWD Curwen 20]. Shrewsbury had made notes from a borrowed copy [41]. Shrewsbury also told Nayland Colum of the Pnakotic Manuscripts [AWD Keeper 141]

Prof. Upton Gardner asked Laird Dorgan to request a copy or photostat of the Pnakotic Manuscripts from Miskatonic University [AWD Dweller 122]. The papers left on Gardner's desk included pages copied from the Pnakotic Manuscripts [AWD Dweller 126].

The Gable Window narrator found a copy in the house of his late cousin, Wilbur Akeley [AWD Gable 206].

Claiborne Boyd found passages from the Pnakotic Manuscripts among the papers of his late great-uncle Asaph Gilman [AWD Gorge 109].

Winfield Phillips read from a Pnakotic Manuscript (sic) borrowed from Prof. Seneca Lapham, who in turn had probably borrowed or copied it from the Miskatonic University library [AWD Lurker 134].

Haddon found fragments of the Pnakotic Manuscripts among the books of Amos Tuttle [AWD Hastur 2]. Paul Tuttle donated the book to the Miskatonic University library [AWD Hastur 25, 29]

Laban Shrewsbury told Horvath Blayne that the Cthulhu Mythos sprang from old manuscripts including the Pnakotic Manuscripts [AWD Island 180].

David, a librarian at Miskatonic University, had delved into the Pnakotic Manuscripts [AWD Sandwin 101, 105].

Marius Phillips found a copy that had been hidden by his late uncle, Sylvan Phillips [AWD Seal 160].

Amos Piper consulted a copy while possessed by a member of the Great Race [AWD Space 234].

Alijah Atwood found a copy among Dr. Jean-FrancoisCharriere's books and papers [AWD Survivor 160].

Dan Harrop found a copy in the collection of his late cousin, Abel Harrop [AWD Whippoorwills 43].

Related Manuscripts

In Inganok, ceremonies are observed as set forth in scrolls older than the Pnakotic Manuscripts . [HPL Kadath 312].

Prinn, Ludvig

Flemish alchemist and sorceror who was burned at the stake by the Inquisition at the height of the witch trials. This would probably place his death in the 1600's. However, Prinn claimed to be the sole survivor of the Ninth Crusade (1271), which would have made him something like four centuries old. Though his claim of such extreme age was disbelieved by contemporaries, the old chronicles of the Ninth Crusade listed a Ludvig Prinn who was a gentleman retainer of Montserrat. [RB Shambler 180]

Prinn claimed to have acquired his sorcerous arts during travels in Saracenic lands. This included years spent captive among the wizards and wonder-workers of Syria, where he encountered djinns and efreets . Prinn also consorted with the mediaeval seers and prophets of Saracen times in Egypt, where he journeyed in the deserts and looted tombs in the hidden valleys of the Nile. The Libyan dervishes preserve legends of his deeds in Alexandria. [RB Faceless 41; Fane 135-136, 141, 143; Sebek 123-124]

Prinn may have had a doctorate, on the basis of a reference to him as Dr. Ludvig Prinn [AWD Whippoorwills 43].

In his later years, Prinn returned to the Flemish lowland country of his birth. He lived in the ruins of a pre-Roman tomb in the forest near Brussels. He was said to be accompanied by familiars and other conjured beings, who were spoken of fearfully as "invisible companions" and "star-sent servants." Local peasants shunned the forest by night because of strange noises that resounded to the moon, and feared that sacrifices were being performed at ancient pagan altars in the darker glens.

However, when the soldiers of the Inquisition came for Prinn, they found the tomb empty of familiars and bare of any sorcerous instruments or apparatus, though some of the nearby pagan altars had fresh bloodstains. Prinn was subjected to particularly atrocious tortures, but gave no information to his questioners, who eventually tired of the process and cast him into a dungeon.

It was while he was in prison, awaiting trial, that Prinn wrote the work for which he is remembered, De Vermis Mysteriis . It is not known how the pages were smuggled out of jail, but the volume was first published a year after his death. [RB Shambler 180-181]

Will Benson held that Prinn was not a charlatan [HK Hunt 167]. Charles stated that Prinn was a considerable sorceror in his day [RB Philtre 293].
