The Voynich Manuscript: Herb Paris

After exploring few other possibilities for fol. 5r of the Voynich Manuscript, I am finally settling with Herb Paris - the ID was originally proposed by Ethel Voynich.


  1. You might like to compare with podophyllum (May Apple) which is an American cousin to mandragora. I'd be interested in reading f 5r so I can compare it with the fruits portrayed in folio 83v.

  2. Some asian Paris like P. polyphylla is even better match.
