Size does'nt matter -

you'll find the frontspiece of the same book here -

there's too much finger & stick pointing going on, but I've not been able to figure it out & have never come across the solution anywhere - is there an English translation out there?

This is just a simple substitution cryptogram. You substitute one letter for another and it remains the same throughout the puzzle. Length of words, word formation and punctuation are clues to solving this puzzle. Just like you see in the newspaper every day :)   I hope someone solves this one. If you have any questions please ask. Please try to solve it and post it before Saturday, August 4th. I will post the answer that day. Good luck!!!!

I solved my first cryptogram on this forum! Do I get a trophy or a plaque?
Just kidding. I joined this forum just a few minutes ago and was just browsing for something I could comment on. I was going to try to solve the first puzzle in binary, but to be honest, I had no idea where to start on that one.

That scan is a little rough... I can make out some of it but it's very blurry. Which Times is it from? I know of several newspapers with Times in the name.
