Yes, and since we have not heard, that the owners was
concerned about this (par example we could expect
a letter to some researchers, asking for these) ...
... so we should consider also the possibility, that these
folios were lost intentionally
Of course, we can't surprise anybody with such suspicions.
All these footprints of secret services around the story
of Voynich, the business of antiquities, which arouses from
nothing, even the much too beautiful story about the origin
of VMS ... if it would exist today around some group of
people, I would say - take care!
