Crossword Genius

Bizarre old books with one chapter (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

exotic

Here is my best explanation:

'bizarre' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'old books with one chapter' is the subsidiary indication.

'old' becomes 'ex'.

'books' becomes 'ot' (abbreviation for Old Testament**).

'with' means one lot of letters go next to another.

'one' becomes 'i' (roman numeral).

'chapter' becomes 'c'.

'ex'+'ot'+'i'+'c'='exotic'

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for exotic that I've seen before include "Weird; alien", "Alluringly foreign", "Foreign; strikingly colourful", "Unusual, foreign", "Weird; strange", "Colourful or unusual, perhaps from abroad", "Unusual and interesting", "Strikingly strange or unusual", "Romantically strange" and "Colourful and glamorous from abroad".)
