This is my only hypothetical question about the manuscript. It really annoys me.
If one of Christie’s valuers were asked to write a description of the Voynich manuscript for a catalogue .. what would they say? What region would they assign it to?
If you wonder ‘Why Christie’s?’
just G/gle ( Christie’s AND fifteenth century manuscript)
They know their onions.
My favourite happy ending story involves walking into an ancient Museum – say, again the British – and the chap in the archives says ‘Oh, lovely, another one. We have the pair in storage – fully provenanced… and I think [insert famous linguist’s name] left a translation lying around here somewhere, too’.
