Seleni, Gustavi [Gustavus Selenus]

CRYPTOMENYTICES ET CRYPT0GRAPHIAE. Libri IX, In Quibus & Planissima Steganographiae a Johanne Trithemio. . .

(Excriptum typis & impensis Johannis & Henrici Fratrum: Lunaeburgensium) 1624 Engraved title; charts including three folding charts and one folding plate of music, 11.5 x 7.5, bound in 19th century (?) gilt decorated boards, 491 pp, covers worn with hinges starting, extremities bumped and fraying, old bookplate (Ex-Bibliothec Zschuckiana), pp toned, some minor foredge wear else an exceptionally nice and usable volume. A much sought-after volume, the cipher illustrated on page 140 was used by Thomas Bokenham to solve the cipher on the statue of Shakespeare in Westminster Abbey (proving that Bacon authored Shakespeare's plays). Even the title page allegorical illustrations in this book are alleged to prove Bacon's authorship. A must-have for anyone with an interest in cryptography! One of the most important titles to have passed through our hands in a long time. (Gustavus Selenus is the pseudonym of Augustus the Younger, Duke of Brunswick-Luneburg.)
