Hi Nick
Thanks for your reply. I cannot scan at the moment, but I am to try and find an other way to show you an evidence of the fact that the woodcut in Ovason s book and V.s catalogs front covers as I saw it in this forum are very much alike. (Where are they  BTW?). Which is perhaps meaningless after all!
I was i.a. thinking about the possibility of Wilfred s interest in astrology, N., A., or old books and so on.
My approach is of course based upon the astronomical/astrological part of VM. Perhaps you too know that there is a "legend" about N. meeting in Italy an Italian physician specialised in medicinal herbs short before the first publication of the Centuries/Prophecies.
Otherwise your Chomerat is the good one.

According to http://www.heraldica.org/topics/jewish.htm
Nostradamus, the famous 16th c. astrologer who settled in
France, bore: Gules, a wheel broken between each spoke or.
Since the color of the charge was too clear a reminder of the
bearer's origins, a descendant had the arms changed to
quarterly, 1 and 4 Argent a wheel sable; 2 and 3 Argent an
eagle's head erased sable (Mathieu 1946, p. 41).

[ R. Mathieu (1946), "Le Systeme Heraldique Francais" ]

So... it doesn't look as though there is any obvious h! eraldic connection
between WMV and Nostradamus - and Alchabitius/Alcabitius himself (Abd
al-Aziz al-Qabisi, died 967) doesn't seem like a prime candidate to have a
coat of arms. :-o

However, I'm not familiar with the manuscript you mention & you're never
~quite~ sure of anything with WMV - so might I suggest that you scan that
page in from "The Nostradamus Code" and post it on the Web for us to have a
look at?

Incidentally, the copious 14-page preface (dedicated to his son Cesar) in
Nostradamus' 1555 edition of his "Propheties" would seem like a good place
to search for cryptography / steganography - has anyone ever examined this?
