The first authorized copy of this mysterious, highly speculated-on-a-lovely, centuries-old puzzle-puzzle.The Voynich Manuscript is produced from new photos of the original set and accompanied by experts from the essays that invite everyone to understand and explore the enigma.Numerous calls to the fifteenth century, the codex, commonly known as the “Manuscript of Voynich”, the world, the most mysterious bookWritten in an unknown writing by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare book dealer Wilfrid Voynich.The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of Emperor Rudolph II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome.The book of the language escaped decipherment, and its elaborate illustrations remain as disconcerting as they are beautiful.For the first time, this facsimile facsimile, complete elaborate folding sections, allows readers to discover this enigma in every detail, from its one-of-a-kindly “Voynichese” text for its illustrations of another world of plants, unknown constellations, and naked women swimming fantastic tubes and green baths.The essays that accompany the manuscript explain what we have learned about this work of alchemy, encryption, forensic medicine, and historical perspectives–but they offer few definitive answers.Instead, as the New York Times best-seller author Deborah Harkness says in her introduction, the book “invites the reader to join us in the heart of the mystery.”
