From the book:

Behold! I present to you a wholly new class of magic item to baffle and amaze your players, The Bottled Wonder.
A myriad of strange things pickled and preserved in bottles, ready to be experimented with by your players.
These pickled treasures range from the merely amusing to the horrifically cursed.
Tired of handing out another +1 sword, or healing potion, when the heroes have defeated their enemies?
Try presenting them with a “Visible Chicken” and watch them try to figure out what it does, or if it does anything at all.
All of the items in this book (110 in all) are presented to the heroes as something preserved in a bottle; noses, hands, fruits or whole creatures.
Some of them replicate the effects of spells, potions, scrolls or other magic items players are already familiar with.
Others are unique in their powers and effects.
But where did these bottled things come from?
Bottled wonders were created hundreds of years ago in the dim history of the world.
Created by the great Decanter class that preceded the alchemists and wizards seen in the world the characters now adventure in.
The Decanters predate magic as it is known now, they tinkered and experimented, taking advantage of the magical powers of the strange creatures sometimes found in the wilds of the world, attempting to harness their powers by preserving the parts of their bodies associated with magical abilities.
Mostly their efforts were fruitless, but they were occasionally able to accomplish marvelous things.
However the nature of the bottled horrors worked against them.
Preservation methods were far from perfect, and the magical forces they attempted to harness were not yet understood.
This means that a Decanter often pulled forth their bottles to perform some feat and were disappointed when the contents merely spilled forth upon the floor in a stinking mess.
Or worse the effect turned on the caster as some terrible random effect occurred.
This led to the abandonment of bottled wonders as the studies of alchemy and wizardry progressed.
Thus the wonders were lost to history, with the practice of decanting being long forgotten by all except historians and story tellers.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
