I'm willing to bet the ink wasn't even dry on this 'newly discovered' book.
How many 500 year old non-doom books are newly discovered. Doesn't happen.
And for around 100$ you can buy your own copy of this newly discoved book. www.amazon.com...edit on 27-1-2014 by VforVendettea because: (no reason given)
this makes me so curious, we talk about these natural phenomenon on the forum
“In the land of the Romans in the year 73 B.C., a golden ball was seen in the sky, which then came down to the Earth and rolled about and flew back up into the air again, in the direction of the rising sun, so that its great size covered up the sun completely. This was followed by the great Roman war.”
There was a topic resentfully about Orbs of light being precursors to earthquakes
Yes, they had colorful paint in the 1500's.
The whole purpose of a book is to protect it's contents, there are many examples of medieval manuscripts that have survived intact. I assume that this book was from a private collection and stored correctly before being rediscovered. Very nice.
...what do you mean by her, seriously don't know ?
