THE VOYNICH MANUSCRIPT: LIMITED AND NUMBERED FACSIMILE EDITION
An emperor, an alleged trickster and a magician are the only clues to the origins of the Voynich Manuscript.
It is said that Emperor Rudolf II of Habsburg, a lover of palmistry, obscure sciences and the eccentric, acquired the strange manual in exchange for 600 gold ducats in 1580. John Dee, a magician who claimed to be in constant communication with the angels by means of magic stones, and Edward Kelley, an alchemist and researcher of the occult, of suspicious fame and quite a charlatan, were the ones who negotiated the important sale of one of the strangest codices, if not the strangest, and whose meaning remains a mystery.
It is known that this document dates from the 15th century, that it is written in a language that no one has been able to decipher and that it contains a series of enigmatic images and illustrations.
Astral signs, non-existent flowers and plants, esoteric images and nudes complete a work as attractive as it is mysterious, which caught the attention of a bookseller interested in the unusual and from whom it takes the name by which it is known today.
Voynich got hold of it in 1912, convinced that its indecipherable contents hid the principles for a future revolution in modern science. He discovered it in the Franciscan convent of Mondragone (Italy). From there it traveled to New York, where the antiquarian Hans Peter Kraus acquired it from his heirs for $24,500 with the intention of reselling it. He didn’t succeed and, finally, ended up donating it to Yale University in the mid-1960s.
Its authorship is unknown. It also has no title and is uncapitulated. Although it also lacks a date, carbon-14 analysis has placed it between approximately 1404 and 1434.
Six centuries later, it has not been possible to identify the language used by the anonymous author. Nor is its meaning really known. Some point to the Cosmos, others to botany or obscure sciences. There are skeptics who attribute it to the simple notebook of a madman, but the truth is that its indecipherable condition has attracted the attention of historians, cryptographers, renowned doctors in ancient languages and even NASA scientists.
Our mission is to bring this compendium of secrets to lovers of works that transgress the unusual, as it is an enigma that no technical advance has been able to solve in 600 years.
There has only been one man who managed to get close enough to such a studied codex: Indiana Jones, although his character was fiction, and the movie was pure fantasy.
My copies of the Voynich Manuscript have arrived thank you; and they look absolutely wonderful. The colours and feel are absolutely sublime, and I just adore the pergamenata cover.
Part of my thesis I’m writing on rare mystical books involved examining the Voynich manuscript. To be able to have a facsimile in such high quality was truly a God send. It meant that I did not have to fly over seas to Yale University or use the low res photos that had been previous sent to me.
This collection is worth the wait!
I have received the book and it is a truly wonderful package. Congratulations. This is everything I would have liked the version of the only original in existence to have. It was a book about a book. Yours is a true facsimile. Thank you.
The facsimile comes with the facsimile print of the Manuscript itself, a small bi-lingual study guide, 10 prints from the Manuscript, a rolled vellum parchment of one of the triptychs, and numbered/signed certificate of authenticity.
The prints and the Rolled parchment are nice.
However, the piece de resistance is the actual facsimile of the manuscript itself The page edges are unevenly cut (like the manuscript) – it’s wrapped in a plan white cover. And it’s BEAUTIFUL. The diptych, triptych and quadriptych pages are sturdy. The polyptych, 6 page foldout is detached from the spine, so one can pull it out and unfold it to its full glory without feeling like it might ruin the binding. The pages are brown and weathered, and colors are muted like you see in photographs. Overall, it’s a gorgeous facsimile, and I’m very glad I purchased it.
