Boxall Rubaiyat

In response to a number of requests, here's the original Verse 70, Jestyn's notation in Alf Boxall's copy of the Rubaiyat. I have added all of the images taken, some of which you will see have been highlighted to show just where the micro writing is to be found. You should be able to note the 'whispy' appearance of the micro written characters, this is typical of lightly written letters of this size. I have studied micro writing extensively and, in fact, am recognised as an expert and a practitioner, I undertake commissions and work in this field.

A couple of tips, firstly when viewing these images it is best to have your screen settings at the high resolution and if printing them out you should ensure that your printer is set to high quality/photo image.

But first, here's a link to a copy of the Rubaiyat which is believed to be of the same series as that found with the Somerton Man.. Courage & Friendship Version Rubaiyat of Omar Khayam

Comparison of the letter R from Verse 70 and the code page.  This was carefully executed and scaled such that they are both in the same ratio of size. You may note the outlines of micro letters within the code page 'R'
