Unique and unpublished late 18th century (ca. 1780 per dealer's description) cryptographic manuscript, with 15 handwritten pages of undeciphered code in the form of fractions, numerals and slash-marks.

The encrypted pages are for the most part interleaved with blanks, suggesting that the author may have intended the encrypted text to be decoded. Also included at the back of the volume are two additional, unrelated encrypted texts, both of which are signed and dated to the 19th century.
