Cod. Sang. 754 and the Voynich ManuscriptVoynich Manuscript
Every now and again we uncover manuscripts with possible direct or indirect links to the Voynich Manuscript. They might contain a similar glyph, a similar illustration, or perhaps a similar diagram. A good example was Cod. Sang. 839 (discovered by Thomas Sauvaget) with the same quire number style.
Cod. Sang. 754 is perhaps special in how many similarities there are.
All credit to the discovery goes to Job (from the Voynichese project); I am simply documenting it for him. I will avoid making any bold claims and simply lay out all the similarities and let you make your own decision. I’ll also not bore you with the details of the manuscript until the end.
1. The illustration
The first thing Job noticed was the style of the illustration on page 164.
It should speak for itself.
(it’s the only full plant illustration in the manuscript so don’t bother looking for others)
