Sure, I'd check it out. Seems like an interesting & mysterious story behind its origins. The Wiki article mentioned a connection to John Dee (he might have owned it once), and the book appears to be some kind of alchemical grimoire or almanack. Maybe the strange language is akin to John Dee's 'Enochian', allgedly the language of angels.

It'd be cool to see it, even if I didn't understand it

I'd like to try my hand at making sense out of it. I've seen pictures of it, the plants and humans and all twined together. It looks beautiful and intriguing.

I think it's a hoax without any meaning, but it's beautifully done!

And probably by an artist or "author" who knew a bit about alchemy.

Character analysys of the "text" suggests that it is gibberish; without any particular letter frequency (unlike European languages, where you can always identify the letter "e" by counting the occurences).

If my memory serves me right, H.P. Lovecraft included it in his fictional collection of "forbidden books"

I wouldnt be interested in seeing it, but I can see how a person educated in that kind of thing would be
