re: The Voynich Manuscript WILFRID GAYE - 1st post - 23 Dec 2002 12:16
I found the programme very interesting. However, as my Mother was the adopted
child of Wilfrid & Ethel Voynich, I have printed documentary material that
states that Ethel V sneaked the document out of Russia for Wilfrid V and not
from an Italian Monastery. I accept that this may still not be the truth. If
the manuscript is a modern fake, it must have taken a very large amount of
effort and resources. I have never heard it said that Wilfrid V. was a forger
or skilled draughtman.
Hmm... I wonder what is that "documentary evidence" since V, in the end gave
the name of the Villa Mondragone.
I did not know that W & E Voynich had adopted a child either.
