The Book of the Damned  (1919) 
by Charles Fort
The Book of the Damned was the first published nonfiction work of the author Charles Fort (first edition, 1919). Dealing with various types of anomalous phenomena including UFOs, strange falls of both organic and inorganic materials from the sky, odd weather patterns, the possible existence of creatures generally held to be mythological, disappearances of people under strange circumstances, and many other phenomena, the book is historically considered to be the first written in the specific field of anomalistics.
