ヴォイニッチの中の植物

1996/7/26, posted by Rene Zandbergen

I've been talking about plant drawings several times now without quoting the folios they appear on. This should make up for that:

f2v: my 'Nymphoides Peltata' (German: Sumpfrose; English: not the banana plant mentioned on the Web but a close relative. Not a water lilly either *).
f8r: Hedera (Ivy).
f11v: the 'Pineapple' mentioned at the Birmingham meeting f39r and f95r2 are the same plant (flowers) IMHO. I might even be (mis)led to believe these are crocusses (crocei?? whatever).
f96v and the botttom plant on f99r are obviously the same plant, and f17v seems similar too. Jim: I gather your wife has seen more drawing of Dracontea/Serpentaria than most people. Could this be what these drawings are? How about one of the leaves on f42r?

f21v - Petersen says salvia. That's common here and it doesn't resemble this.

f22v - Looks like milkweed.

f34v - Looks like lotus flowers.

f40v - Looks like calendula, roots like radishes. Petersen says Jerusalem artichoke (helianthus tuberosus). That is a sunflower that grows here. We have pictures, and it doesn't look like that. The center is not raised, and the petals are not like the sunflower. The roots should look more knotted, less bulb-like.

f50r - Looks like lotus pod or protea.

f50v - Also protea.

f85/86 - Newbold's ovum. We say it's the Colosseum in Rome, with sewer pipes out the southeast side. ;-)

f89v1 - Left center drawing, root looks like mermaid, person.

f90v - Root looks like cat body, plant head!

f93r - Brumbaugh's "sunflower". Petersen also says coxcomb, and we think it looks more like coxcomb, Celasia argentea 'Cristata'.

f100r - 3rd row, 1st on left, leaf on soapberry tree. Brumbaugh's "pepper" could be a pepper; there are many varieties of pepper.

f100v - 1st row, 2nd from left, looks like human lung!

f102r - (Jim's p. 229) - Drawing on bottom right looks like elephant ear. The one next to the left looks like white radish.

f102r - (Jim's p. 233) - The drawing on 3rd row, 4th left, Petersen's #231, looks like parsnip, pod like okra.
