This famous manuscript (named as Codex Pr*nsis) is written by an unknown
author. The math. historian believes that the author's name is encrypted
under the following mysterious phrase:


(-5)o(-7)(-1) (-7)o(+3)(+5)o(-1) (-12)o(-1)(+8)(-14)(+10)

=

J o h n H o r t o n C o n w a y

o = origin, n = -1, m = -2, ell = -3, k = -4, j = -5, etc

p = +1, q = +2, r = +3, s = +4, t = +5, etc.
