Is there any way of getting rid of or destroying the book

Basically I would like an Ancient book, and sources led me to a man named Jossik locked up in some lighthouse, but he’s decided I can’t buy the book since I already have an incomplete one from a different runescape gold. This is where the sticky situation comes in, as my young naive self obviously thought it would be great to buy the Zamorak one, and I’m not too keen on splashing out 8 million gp.

Is there any way of getting rid of or destroying the book? I’ve tried everything I can (aka dropping it, but no matter where you drop the book it always ‘washes up on the shore and I can’t get rid of it.

I’d appreciate some sort of advice with this but I’m guessing I’m not the first to have this problem.

Nope, not way at all to circumvent this dilemma besides the obvious. If you truly want to own the Ancient Book then you’re going to have to fork out for the cost of a Zamorak Book. Jagex have stated many times they have no interest in making an option to allow players to completely destroy books or own several incomplete books at once.

If you don’t plan on using the Ancient Book any time soon then wait till the Zamarok pages to drop in price.
