And we never even know we have the key.

A most excellent thread, the stuff I really go online to see.

Naw, they're used to it, kinda like the Koala bears, stoned all the time.

Hah, thought I'd forgotten, eh?

I realized while reading the material provided here that I had indeed seen most of this before, but I smoke a lot of weed so I forget things. Plus, I read a lot.

Anyway, my layman's take is that it is a bit questionable in origin, but it seems that it predates Voynich.
To me, the illustrations look suspiciously 19th century, in fact, there are some apparently pre-Impressionist stylistic elements in the drawings which would make me guess circa1870s.

However, some of the expert analysis of the paper seems to indicate that these texts are indeed of an earlier origin.

So I'm guessing a pre-Voynich hoax, but I'm still not sure either way.

As far as the translation, I think the Edith Sherwood work comes closest to making any sense of it. Unfortunately, the few pages provided give only a glimpse into her interpretation, and I haven't found time to delve any further than the material presented here.

Interesting stuff on the surface; if I were inclined I'd probably start with Sherwood and see if she's been able to make a logical translation of the work as a whole.

Sorry I didn't get a chance to go deeper, but I'm not impressed enough to give it much more of my time. I'd love to see what anyone else digs up, though. :cheers:
