Guessing Game

Q: What is 234 pages long, with 11 foldout pages containing diagrams of the heavens, written in what appears (even to the most ingenious code-crackers in history) to be gibberish, adorned with pictures of impossible flora and “decidedly unerotic drawings of groups of plump naked women?”

A: The Voynich Manuscript!

Alas, that is all the answer we can provide. But, for more information and a history of the ms, see “Secret Knowledge – or a Hoax?” by Eamon Duffy, New York Review of Books (April 20, 2017).
