I think it significant that the broken images all have "cypher
manuscript" under them, which I don't remember the music
pages having.

I can be wrong, but IIRC, a search for "Voynich" or "Voynich
Manuscript" pulled up 4 pages, while "MS 408" pulled up 11.

I also note that clicking BRLB DL under a VMs thumbnail
also takes you to the music score.

You're probably right. Personally, I plan to go for the Astro/Cosmo
section first, and get the rest later.  My stepson's color printer is
going to be working overtime.
