Re: VMs: Re: T.B. ETC

OK Jeff
No problem, here are some most recent news from the author:
"Well, the Ars Paulina is an English magician's expansion of the third
of Trithemius' Steganographia. The author has taken the names of
angels and brought them into a magical system of his own construction.

The sources for the sigils are:

The Calendrium Magicum engraved by Theodorus de Bry and attributed to
(doubtless to get some respect) and published by Adam McLean as part of
Hermetic Sourcewords series (Phanes Press, ISBN 0-933999-33-X).

The citation for the eariler Trithemius calendar containing the sigils
drawn from a citation in Fred Getting's Dictionary of Occult, Hermetic
Alchemical Sigils (Routledge & Keegan Paul, ISBN 0-7100-0095-3) who
reproduces the sigils with comparisons to the de Bry calendar".
Brr and good night from France
P.S. I think that Gettings works are worth knowing. At least some of them.

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?

Hi Jeff
Otherwise, I only found this about T.B. and ciphers at the moment. Did you already know?
My expectation is yes...

Hi everyone,

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.
