DESCRIPTION
Three manuscripts bound together. The first is a manuscript concerning the deciphering of ancient inscriptions. Examples of inscriptions provided in the text include the Darius Naqsh-e Rostam inscription (a famous Achaemenid-era inscription located in Naqsh-e Rostam, Iran) and an inscription by the Persian King Xerxes. The second manuscript concerns encrypted telegrams and outlines and reproduces information from the various treaties and conferences in Europe regarding telegraphic communication. The third manuscript concerns 'non valeurs'.
Notes
Acquired as part of a collection of 12 manuscripts addressing codebreaking and cryptanalysis. The manuscripts are linked to a series of training courses and lectures held in Vienna between the 17th of April - 19th of June 1936 and the 16th of October - 25th of June 1937. The manuscripts were probably produced by the Austrian Cipher Bureau.
