The Beinecke does not provide color photocopies of the Voynich manuscript. We do provide positive microfilm or copyflo prints (bound black and white copies enlarged from microfilm).
Microfilm with domestic shipping is $35.00
Copyflo prints with domestic shipping are $40.00
Advance payment is required and should be mailed to the attention of Ellen R. Cordes, Head of Public Services, at the P.O. Box address below our signature. Please include a copy of this estimate with your payment. Payment may be made by check payable to Beinecke Library or by MasterCard or Visa number with an authorization signature and expiration date. Overseas customers paying by check are required to so in U.S. dollars drawn on an American bank. For our legal records, remote credit card authorizations must be sent by mail or fax, not E-mail. If additional payment is required, a bill will be sent and must be paid before shipment.
You may also view images from the Voynich manuscript at our Digital Image databases. Search by the call number MS 408 in our Digital image databases at <http://beinecke.library.yale.edu/dl_crosscollex/>, being sure to select both the Photonegatives and Beinecke Digital Images databases before searching. Click on a thumbnail image to see the Image Id number and other cataloging information. Click "Save" above the thumbnail of an image you need, then click on "My Group," then click on the "Make Page" button and follow the directions for either ordering or e-mailing or downloading gratis images to yourself. Most images are scanned from black and white negatives although some appear in color because they were scanned from color transparencies.
TIFFs are digital copies; photocopies are paper copies. Copies you receive will not have the Yale seal. Each scan is $15 plus the cost of the CD. 2-3 images can fit on each CD. The manuscript is in poor condition but it is possible to order additional scans of some pages if in good condition for an additional charge of $25 each scan.
