Re: VMs: Researching the VMs at Beinecke

Luis, ditto!  I have them, but only in photocopy, as poor as the original Voynich images.  Very good stuff in the Sphaera however, but that's just an opinion.
Dana, would it be possible to ask the Beinecke to post a MrSids image that contains a color scale and ruler?  Too late for me, since I've already printed and bound my most valuable copy of the MS, but my memory says the colors were far more vivid than they are in the MrSids images.   In any sense however, it is important to color balance and scale properly.

Congratulations - enjoy the experience for those of us who can't/haven't!
You might consider checking ff. 83r-105r of MS337, Sphaera; they contain astrological volvelles by Anthony Askham and I have always been curious to see them (they are not online):


Happy Hunting!

Hello All,

I am currently researching the VMs and accompanying documents at the Beinecke Library. It is a wonderful experience to be able to examine the original incunabula. If anyone has a burning need for me to examine a particular item, please do not hesitate to ask. I will be here next week as well.

Kind Regards,
Dana Scott
