Re: VMs: Reasearching the VMs at Beinecke
it was first noticed by Jim Reeds that some pages
seem to be of 'thicker' vellum than others.
A list of this was never made. It could
be a relevant piece of information on how the book
was put together.
Also, be sure to take time to check the boxes with
additional information. If you have a digital
camera, the notebooks by Mrs Voynich, with
potential plant identifications and other
hypotheses, would be a good source.
I think that of three boxes of letters microfilms
were already made, so you could save a lot
of time by not having to go through them.
Could you confirm that the a, b,c written in
the upper corners of some astro/cosmo pages
are written in pencil? This is my impression.
Cheers and enjoy,
