(1) “Why Is the Bulk of the Ocean Retained in the Southern Hemi-sphere?”  J. Leith.  1885. 
The answer, according to the author of this 23 page booklet, lies in the sudden increase in width of the 36th course of masonry of the Great Pyramid.  Not the clearest of booklets.  In fact, the title is the clearest bit.  But worth a thoroughly bewildering read. 

(2) “The Mystery of the Early British”.  R. H. Quine.  No date. 
One of the author’s basic contentions is that the stone circles of the British Isles were built as cattle pens.  Silbury Hill a British Pyramid.  Woodhenge the remains of a king’s house.  Makes a change. 

(3) “The Riddle of Prehistoric Britain”.  W. Comyns Beaumont.  1946. 
Did the Ancient History of the Middle East really take place in Britain?  The author of this book seems to think so, basing much of his evidence on mythology and place names.  Just goes to show what can be demonstrated with a bit of mythology and a few place names, if one really sets one’s mind to it. 

(4) “The Great Law”.  Hamish F. MacHuisdean.  Glasgow 1924. 
A book which shows how to square the circle and duplicate the cube using the Great Pyramid.  A real must for those with a taste for Pyramid books written in Scottish–American slang. 

“That’s the most important piece of evidence we’ve heard yet,” said the King, rubbing his hands; “so now let the jury—”

“If any one of them can explain it,” said Alice (she had grown so large in the last few minutes that she wasn’t a bit afraid of interrupting him), “I’ll give him sixpence (= 2½p.  Ed.).  I don’t believe there’s an atom (quark? Ed.) of meaning in it.”

The jury all wrote down on their slates, “She doesn’t believe there’s an atom of meaning in it,” but none of them attempted to explain the paper. 

“If there’s no meaning in it,” said the King, “that saves a world of trouble, you know, as we needn’t try to find any.  And yet I don’t know,” he went on, spreading out the verses on his knee, and looking at them with one eye; ” I seem to see some meaning in them after all.”
