A rare Leonardo Da Vinci coded manuscript has been discovered in a public library in France.

It was one of several thousand manuscripts donated by Pierre-Antoine Labouchere in 1872 and then forgotten about. The document is written in cryptic mirrored writing and so far it has not been deciphered.

"A coded manuscript by Leonardo da Vinci has been discovered in a public library in the French city of Nantes."

Slow news day in France? It's cold and snowy so no car burnings no ranting in the streets about the new retirement age (62).

138 years to realize that library owns a treasure.... that news is about as fascinating as the discovery. Only in France! Only in France and the Smithsonian. LOL! (meaning the Smithsonian deliberately buries treasures in their archives and storage space.)

I don't think it's too odd that he wrote a lot of things in code. he could have been worried about people steeling his ideas or fear of being accused of blasphemy or just plain privacy concerns.

That's also my opinion, and a theory that many historians and art experts who deal with Da Vinci accept. However, Da Vinci still remains a bit mysterious
