For years, readers have debated the origins of the mysterious Voynich Manuscript, an undated book written in an unknown language.
At the Yale University Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library’s online site, you can now read the entire book. Follow this link to explore the strange and beautiful book.
Here’s more from the library: “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.” (Via BoingBoing)
