I agree Nonna....

I have been reading about this book for a few years now. I wanted to study rare documents and first edition/special edition books at one point.

I always thought it was probably almost an almanac, maybe with some medical stuff, gardening/farming stuff, and so on and so forth.

What always drew me back to the story wasn't so much what the book was about, although that certainly is an interesting thought process, but how nearly impossible it has been to decipher. In this day of modern technology and years of people breaking codes, this one remained a mystery and challenge.
