Re: Codex Seraphinianus
We had a long discussion about the numbering and various other
aspects on the SF-Lovers list in 1987. Martin Feather started
working it out and ran into some snags, but recognized the
essential radix-21 representation. The definitive work was
done by Allan C. Wechsler -- as far as I know his is the earliest
complete exposition of the numbering.
Wechsler thought the codex language was a fake, based on an
analysis of "upper-case" characters. Others weren't convinced.
Bill Newlin wrote in 1994:
:The author is alive and well and living in Italy. The Dutch publisher
:who participated in the international co-edition (Maarten Asscher of
:Meulenhoff) claims he is a man of "high seriousness," and that he insists
:the language is genuine.
