exotic

Here is my best explanation:

'bizarre' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'old books with one chapter' is the wordplay.
'old' becomes 'ex'.
'books' becomes 'ot' (Old Testament).
'with' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).
'one' becomes 'i' (Roman numeral).
'chapter' becomes 'c'.
'ex'+'ot'+'i'+'c'='EXOTIC'
