Very Good. Printed wrappers, 4to, 27 cm, ix, 140 pp, 65 ills. For over 80 years the "Voynich manuscript"-a cipher manuscript long attributed to Roger Bacon-has baffled cryptographers and medievalists. This is a detailed study setting out the known facts concerning the manuscript; discussing the principal avenues of attack through which attempts at decipherment have been or might be made; considering the claims made for various purported decipherments and other analyses; and summarizing a mass of collateral research on Roger Bacon, on medieval and renaissance cosmology and iconology, on artificial and secret languages, and on early herbals and materia medica. D'Imperio concludes with some suggestions for further research. With 65 illustrations and a bibliography of over 300 references. Indexed.
