DESCRIPTION
A manuscript containing codebreaking training exercises. Exercises include: 'Einsechsdeutige, periodische monogrammatische-monogrammatische Zuordnung' (Unique, periodic monogrammatic-monogrammatic mapping), 'Rekonstruktion des Klaralphabetes und des Geheimalphabetes bei einer Zirkularscheibe' (Reconstruction of the plain alphabet and the secret alphabet on a circular disc) and 'Lösung einer Transposition, vertauschung von zwei Ziffern' (Solution of a transposition, exchange of two digits). On an exercise dated 13th November 1936, the name 'Karl Jomansky' is written in the top-right corner.
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.
