The Radium Book.
The Radium Book is something I've been trying to acquire for a long time, if only to confirm once and for all that it doesn't actually contain any radium (which would have been far too expensive to use in a book like this). Yes, it is completely non-radioactive.
I paid a lot for this book, which is almost impossible to find, because while it's not radioactive, it is a a wonderful artifact from an era where that would have been considered a problem along the lines of false advertising, while giving a child a radioactive book to read would have seemed perfectly normal.
