The Dark Crystal Wiki

The Book of Aughra was the collective name given by J. J. Llewellyn to three manuscripts written by Aughra in first person during the Age of Power, chronicling the history of Thra from its beginning to the end of the Age of Division.[1]

Discovered by accident on Earth among other artifacts near an eroded rock carving, the location of its discovery was never divulged, but its existence was long rumored among linguists and thaumatologists. The text was primarily written in Aughrian, though it also included texts in the Gelfling, Skeksis and urRu languages. Translation of the text was done largely through meditation, though Llewellyn and his colleagues were secretive of the exact technique, fearing the consequences of inadvertently contacting other worlds.[1]

The book was published in English in 1981, and included Llewellyn's annotations.[1]
