Named after book dealer Wilfrid Voynich who purchased the manuscript 100 years ago, the ciphers in which the book is written have defied repeated attempts to break them.

Yale University's Beinecke Library has uploaded the entire manuscript for public perusal including zoom facility:

Beinecke MS 408

Whether it's a 100 year old hoax or the 600 year old ramblings of a mad monk (take your pick), either way, it seems that a dozen or so calves lost their hides for no good reason. A dreadful waste of vellum.
