The Voynich Manuscript is a hand written document, of which 240 pages remain, written on calf skin vellum, illustrated with diagrams, drawings, and an unknown language written from left to right. It was purchased in Italy in 1912 by Polish book dealer Wifrid Voynich who owned it until his death in New York in 1930. Later donated to Yale University, it is now in the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library.
