Re: VMs: Tycho Brahe cipher

Hi Jeff
Is this instance that one:
1597 Feb. 22 In a letter to Rantzau Tycho agrees to the Gregorian calender. He proposes a cipher for exchanging alchemic knowledge.

on this site:

Oh yes it s interesting to me too; my understanding is that Kepler possibly was not an alchemist, but that Brahe was.

I have found one instance on the web of a cipher proposed by Brahe in 1597
for a cipher to exchange alchemical information. Does anyone have any other
information on this? And no I don't think Tycho Brahe wrote the VMS, that
would just be silly. I am interested in the origins of his idea. So if
anyone can help please let me know.
