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.
