Meta-data for J. VS Library deposit:
This deposit contains, in addition to this meta-data text-file, two image
Crisogonus9RMSclockhands.jpg is a side-by-side comparison of:
the so-called “clock” in the Voynich manuscript (Beinecke MS 408) nine
rosettes foldout illustration, on the foldout's f85v1 panel (the lower
left panel in normal view), with
a keys glyph or scribal flourish or scribal code or sine or manu propria to
the right of the initials and coat of arms of Crisogonus de Nassis, at the
bottom right of page f.1r in the manuscript Bridwell MS 5 .
The crops from the Bridwell and Beinecke source images show that the
similarity between the Crisogonus keys glyph and the unsusual “clock hands”
in the VMS is notable.
CrisogonusNumeralsBMS5ff55v56r.jpg is a crop from the Bridwell MS 5 pages
ff. 55v-56r showing the Hindu-Arabic numerals as Crisogonus rendered them
in 1469 - they are fully modern in form, and directly bear on arguments that
attempt to date the Voynich ms via the forms of its own Hindu-Arabic
numerals examples, such as its folio numbers. Comparison with tables of
Hindu-Arabic numerals forms versus time and place, such as Fig. 16 in
D'Imperio, makes it clear that attempts to date the Voynich by its numerals
forms, is uncertain at best.
The above images pertain to discussions in [2, 3].

 Bridwell MS 5, self-dated 18 November 1469, and 10 December 1469, is
the hand of Crisogonus de Nassis copying some Pseudo-Eusebius of Cremona and
The rubrics throughout MS 5 also are worth comparing with some illustration
components in the Voynich ms.
