The Voynich Manuscript

Voynich

Widely considered to be one of the most mysterious manuscripts in the world, The Voynich Manuscript contains a ciphered unknown alphabet written on vellum (calfskin) and depicts bizarre plants, zodiac-like astronomical charts, and tiny naked people in interconnected bathtubs. Cryptographers, mathematicians and linguists have been unable to decipher this book for centuries. Despite its arcane nature, scholars maintain it was written during the medieval years of 1404 and 1438. Its name comes from antique book dealer Wilfrid Voynich, who bought the volume second-hand in Italy in 1912.
