No I definately hadn't tracked that one down. Thanks for that! The symbols are interesting. What is even more interesting is that Brahe showed more symbols than Trithemius. If Brahe knew of an extended set then were there even more that haven't come to light yet?Jeff----- Original Message -----From: jean-yves arteroSent: 03 July 2004 12:51Subject: VMs: T.B.

I've just had a second email from UPenn, saying that actually they do have
Newbold's papers after all. I've converted their inventory listing to HTML
and added it to my list of Voynichiana on GC's site:-
The contents appear somewhat scrambled: I suspect they may not have been
examined since 1928. Possibly problematic for us is the "Empty envelope:
Bacon photos of MS examination after July 8" - still, until one of us goes
through all the boxes properly, I guess we won't know. :-(
Note that there is also a listing for Professor Roland Grubb Kent's papers,
which I've also asked for a listing of.
