I give examples to show that the code used in the Voynich Manuscript is probably a series of Italian word anagrams written in a fancy embellished script. This code, that has been confusing scholars for nearly a century, is therefore not as complicated as it first appears.
Brumbaugh further reports seeing some numbers in the upper right corner of f1r before it was obliterated by the application of chemicals (intended to reveal faded writing).
The bottom margin of f1r contains the signature: Jacobj de Tepenece, visible under UV light.

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.

It seems like a lot of words in the manuscript keep on showing up. It's bizarre that someone hasn't already decoded this. I mean, there is a definite recurrence of letters.

Well that fifth picture down (blue and green ball-like structure with spikes) look like a virus under a microscope.
