The Voynich Manuscript

Everybody loves a good mystery, especially one that is hundreds of years old.  The Voynich Manuscript is just that.  The Manuscript is a 240 page coded book with a variety of mysterious images.  It is unsure if the writing in it is a code, a forgotten language, or pure gibberish used as a trick.

The Beinecke Rare Book Library describes it as: “Written in Central Europe at the end of the 15th or during the 16th century, the origin, language, and date of the Voynich Manuscript—named after the Polish-American antiquarian bookseller, Wilfrid M. Voynich, who acquired it in 1912—are still being debated as vigorously as its puzzling drawings and undeciphered text. Described as a magical or scientific text, nearly every page contains botanical, figurative, and scientific drawings of a provincial but lively character, drawn in ink with vibrant washes in various shades of green, brown, yellow, blue, and red.”
