INSURED SHIPMENT / OWN COLLECTION

One of the most mysterious works in human history.

The manuscript, which is the work of an unknown author, dates back to the 15th century. There are 120 pages from the book. It was written on parchment in an unknown language and decorated with incomprehensible illustrations. For almost a hundred years, it has been sleeping with scientists and mystery enthusiasts, historians, bibliophiles and cryptologists. 

The text has about 35,000 "words" of various lengths, and these "words" seem to follow some kind of phonetic and grammatical rules. It also contains numerous illustrations. They do not shed light on the content of the manuscript, but show that the book consists of six sections. Almost every page contains at least one illustration, with the exception of the last section, which consists solely of text. The manuscript contains the following sections: Herbal, Astronomical, Biological, Cosmological, Pharmaceutical and Footnotes.

The manuscript was purchased from the Italian Jesuits in 1912 by a Polish antiquarian, Michał Wojnicz. The original of the Voynich Manuscript is in the Library of Rare Books of Yale University and is not made public. 

Scientific artistic copy

The work is an artistic, scientific copy of the original, hand-finished with a scalpel, hand-cut. The binding is made of natural calf parchment. The copy is undoubtedly a true work of art and a testimony to the extraordinary craftsmanship of the artists and specialists who took part in its creation. The facsimile contains 240 hand-applied pages. The whole is placed in a beautiful wooden box. The circulation in Poland is only 100 copies
