It has the same Inventory image as the Book of the Gods.
After completion of One Piercing Note, if the book has all four pages, and you have 60 crafting and 60 prayer, you can use it to create an Illuminated ancient book. This grants you 10,000 Prayer experience and 10,000 Crafting experience (for the first time only) and leaves you with both the Ancient book and an Illuminated Ancient Book.
Filling the Ancient Book with all pages currently costs 851,174 coins.
