In 1912, a London bookseller, acquired a manuscript as part of a much larger collection of rare books. Nothing unusual there but this collection was different and so was this manuscript. At the time, he didn’t know what he had in his possession.   This manuscript had not been seen for over 200 years. After he unearthed it, it became a text of enormous interest to scientists, historians, academics and the public alike because it is quite simply a mystery.   Elements of its history have been painstakingly pieced together but the true purpose of the book, its origin and its meaning have confounded all who have studied it.   This is the story of the Voynich manuscript.    For more information visit www.injustoneday.com/manuscript.
