In my eye's this is right up there with Da Vinci.
Perhaps the similarities are no coincidence:
The Voynich Manuscript may have been written by a young Leonardo da Vinci as evidenced by a similarity to Leonardo’s script and signature, an indication of mirror writing, and an astrological chart that corresponds to Leonardo’s birthday. Mistakes in the manuscript point to the possibility that a precocious child could have been the author.
Here is a short paper making the case that Da Vinci may have written the manuscript in his youth.
In 2009, University of Arizona researchers performed C14 dating on the manuscript's vellum, which they assert (with 95% confidence) was made between 1404 and 1438

I belive I know where this book came from. You see hundreds of years ago my Elf Ranger PC and one of my party's Orc Rogue got into a fight with a wizard over a couple GPS. The wizard tried to cast fireball at us (he had to his book of spells out to do so) but before he could do so I redied an attack and hit him with my composite shortbow for -8 Hp defeating him instantly.
The Orc Rogue did pick the Wizard's pockets but apparently forgot about the book.
We were later TPK'd by a a couple hundred pit fiends..
Hmm...I wonder how many nerds out there know what I'm talking about and how many are completly confused.
