The Voynich Manuscript is an alchemical text in the collection of Yale University. After the death of Wilfred Voynich, who discovered and purchased the manuscript in 1912, it was donated to the university by his widow.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
The Voynich Manuscript being in Yale's collection in the 1930s is anachronistic. It wasn't given to the university until 1969 when it was donated by H. P. Kraus, who had bought the manuscript from Ethel Voynich's estate.
