Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library, Yale University Voynich manuscript

The mysterious Voynich manuscript contains botanicals drawings of 113 unidentified plant species. All accompanied by indecipherable text. It dates to the end of the 15th century.

A classic Criptical one: The Voynich Manuscript. 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.[2][17][18] In addition, the McCrone Research Institute in Chicago found that the paints in the manuscript were of materials to be expected from that period of European history.
