AuthorGiovan Battista della Porta
Publication Date1563
LanguageLatin
 


Manuscript written by Giovan Battista della Porta in the 1500s.


In it, it describes the use of a deck of card to encode secret information by writing on the sides of the deck in a known order, then shuffling the cards to destroy the order and render the message illegible to anyone not familiar with the stack. The plot of Unshuffled later contained this idea.
