Description

167pp, "third edition" vg. This is an early title of Health Research, R. G. Wilborn's remarkable and pioneering reprint house (also publishing original editions) that specialized in all the most marginal, occult, and obscure books that had gone out of print and were frequently lost if not for Wilborn's industry. I remember dealing with him in the early 1980's, he would send me his "want lists" and I would report back, on little slips of paper, my typed descriptions of titles I might have. It was always assumed he would pay little and I was just happy to deal with such an important man. He was a chiropractor and always wrote his gruff and hasty notes to me in thick green ink, and he was not afraid to pick up the phone and bark "where are my books" a few days after he ordered them. I know he lived into his 90's at least and the press still continues somewhere in Oregon. In the case of this book he took the trouble to re-type the entire book, presumably because he could not legally photocopy it, and issue it in a mimeograph format.

Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...
