All sorts of Latin and Greek texts - I guess they'd perhaps count as "obscure" to most people.

I have a copy of:

Oh Angry Sea (a-ab-ba-hu-luh-la): The History of a Sumerian Congregational Lament.

Written by Raphael Kutscher, it is a treatise on the purpose and form of the Sumerian lamentation genre.

Oh Angry Sea (a-ab-ba-hu-luh-la): The History of a Sumerian Congregational Lament was published in 1975. I am sorry that my submission does not meet your standards of obscure. Perhaps you need to clarify what your definition of obscure is?

I'm with ZP. You win hands down, MB. I keep rereading the title and I have yet to fathom what it could possibly be about.

MB-I didn't mean to offend you.I meant obscure as in something old and forgoten.

I have a signed copy of High Speed Computing Devices published in 1950. It's a fun read. They discuss some rather famous computers (such as the Mark IV) as "currently under construction."

Two Treatises: In the One of which, The Nature of Bodies; In the other, The Nature of Mans Soule, is looked into: In Way of Discovery of the Immortality of Reasonable Soules. by Sir Kenelm Digby. Written in 1644, the last printed edition came out in 1968, and when I wanted to get it out of the university library to use for my dissertation, they had to go and find it in the cellar. I was only the second person ever to check it out, the previous one being in 1973. I've since found a facsimile copy on the Internet Archive, which is on my iLiad. It's not an light read!

When I was a teenager and checked "Gulliver's Travels" out of my local library, they too had to dig it out of the archives for me; I was the first person to borrow it for 40 years.
