After Boing Boing reported that the Codex Seraphinianus was scanned and put online (albeit dubiously) now they’ve got a post about the complete Voynich Manuscript being scanned an put online too. This one is certainly past copyright. It’s a beautiful piece of work. From the site

“Written in Central Europe at the end of the 15th or during the 16th century, the origin, language, and date of the Voynich Manuscript—named after the Polish-American antiquarian bookseller, Wilfrid M. Voynich, who acquired it in 1912—are still being debated as vigorously as its puzzling drawings and undeciphered text. Described as a magical or scientific text, nearly every page contains botanical, figurative, and scientific drawings of a provincial but lively character, drawn in ink with vibrant washes in various shades of green, brown, yellow, blue, and red.”
