VMs: Text first

Dear list,
this 11th century herbal manuscript looks pretty Voynich like, even got some nudes in it:
But most interesting is the folio on the bottom (36v-37r):
"Spaces in the text for pictures of herbs have been left unfilled.."
This could mean that also in the VMS text came first,drawings later!
And that the writer(s) isn't (aren't) the same person(s) as the drawer(s)....Or that text and drawings have little to do with eachother.....or from different times..
I'll hear.
Cheers, Johannes.
