The Voynich Manuscript is an illustrated codex hand-written in an unknown writing system. The name of the book comes from the bibliopole named M. Voynich. The vellum on which it is written has been carbon-dated to the early 15th century (1404–1438), and it may have been composed in Northern Italy during the Italian Renaissance. The manuscript is named after Wilfrid Voynich, a Polish book dealer who purchased it in 1912. Voynich tried to decrypt the code for years since he got his hands on the book, thinking that there may be some cryptic secrets that have been hidden. But he couldn't find any results.
