Extreme Coursing

The rocket propelled rabbit of Joanes or Giovanni de Fontana, ca. 1420. Extreme coursing is best observed from the blockhouse.

This is the same fertile mind that proposed a pyrotechnic mitre and crosier.

For some reason, people think I'm pulling their leg when I tell them about this stuff.

If you want to read more of the treatise, it turns out that the cipher is on Wikipedia.
