The Hanging Gardens of Wasten Coridale

(This book was apparently written in Dwemer and translated to Aldmeris. Only fragments of the Aldmeris is readable, but it may be enough for a scholar of Aldmeris to translate fragments of other Dwemer books.)

… guide Altmer-Estrial led with foot-flames for the town-center where lay dead the quadrangular gardens ….

… asked the foundations and chains and vessels their naming places ….

… why they did not use solid sound to teach escape from the Earth Bones nor nourished them with frozen flames ….

… the word I shall have once written of, this "art" our lesser cousins speak of when their admirable ignorance ….

… but neither words nor experience cleanses the essence of the strange and terrible ways of defying our ancestors' transient rules.

(The translation ends with a comment in Dwemer in a different hand, which may be translated as follows)

"Put down your ardent cutting-globes, Nbthld. Your Aldmeris has the correct words, but they cannot be properly misinterpreted."
