The Voynich Manuscript is a document that is notable for its strange text, that to date hasn't been decyphered. Theories range from a secret language or code to an old sort of joke or hoax.

He then moved on to the proportional compass, the telescopic discoveries of 1610, the ‘bodies in water’ and...

A native of France, Nicolas Jenson was one of the most important printers operating in Venice in the fifteenth century. Between c.1470 and 1480, Jenson produced around 150 books including the 1475 printing of St. Augustine's "De Civitate Dei" or "The City of God."
