Riverbank Publications Monographs

Today I was viewing A Phoenix's masterful video, 'The Fraudulent Friedmans', for the umpteenth time. My website, gorhambury.org, is dedicated to her, and there I acknowledged this video as being "fundemental" to my research project as a whole.

Well, umpteen times were apparently still not too many, since I was able to finally understand what she has been saying about the non-availability of the Riverbank Publications monographs from William F. Friedman relating to Sir Francis. I have provided extensive background information at https://gorhambury.org/public/experiments/experiment-one/.

Anyway, I have uploaded a copy of the one missing Riverbank volume she mentioned, so that along with the others now, I believe my website is the one place where all six of the monographs are available to researchers all in the same place, https://gorhambury.org/public/exhibits/monographs/

Hi FB Decipherer, 

Thank you for your kind and generous comments about our Friedman video. 

I am not sure if are you aware of our accompanying 340 page book on THE FRAUDULENT FRIEDMANS on which the video is based upon. It contains a great deal of important information not included in the video. For example, it includes an interesting chapter entitled 'The Endorsement of the Bacon Bi-literal Cipher Deciphered by Elizabeth Wells Gallup by Experts Working for US, British and French Intelligence'. The work is also heavily referenced (756 references) so it may help in tracking down helpful information and also includes 81 facsimiles some reproduced therein for the first time.  You can read it here: https://www.academia.edu/81465877/The_Fraudulent_Friedmans_The_Bacon_Ciphers_in_the_Shakespeare_Works  First page below.

We hail from Birmingham in the middle of the UK - Brummies!!!!!😀

 

THE FRAUDULENT FRIEDMANS 

THE BACON CIPHERS IN THE SHAKESPEARE WORKS

By A. Phoenix

June 2022

'To anyone with real cryptological experience it is hard to reconcile the impartiality claimed by the authors with the skill and legerdemain by which certain danger-points have been avoided. It is these unexpected manipulations which have led me at times to suspect a “command performance”…[in] what is admittedly a very clever “plant”…The professional status of a modern cryptographer does not necessarily fit him to pass judgement on the subtle cryptology of a secret society of the past.

The book, granted, does away with the fanciful work of some amateur cryptologists, an easy task, an empty triumph. But, having thus gained the confidence of the readers, the authors deceive them by “Scientific” demonstrations which they know to be false.'

[Professor Pierre Henrion, ‘Scientific Cryptology Examined’, Baconiana, Vol. XLIII, No 160 March 1960, pp. 43-63, at pp. 43-4, 47; Vol. LXVI, No. 183, December 1983, p.76 ]  

'The frankly shocking “legerdemain” of the Friedmans, who unquestionably knew exactly what they were doing….stooped to the very lowest kind of intellectual dishonesty…In truth, this book is probably the most astonishing collection of deceit and deliberately calculated falsifications that have ever been crammed between the covers of a book…I can only believe that some person or organization with a vested interest in the perpetuation of the Stratfordian myth commissioned the Friedmans to write [it].'

[Kenneth R. Patton, Setting The Record Straight: An Expose of Stratfordian Anti-Baconian Tactics...In Elizebeth S. and William F. Friedmans The Shakespearean Ciphers Examined (2000), pp. 5, 8, 13]

'…at a subsequent meeting in London, a trios, Pares had demonstrated the ciphers at the conclusion of Camden’s Remaines without contradiction from the Colonel [Friedman] and to the complete satisfaction of the Cambridge Professor of Mathematics, who was the third party involved. In addition we understand from Group Captain F. Winterbotham, author of Ultra Secret, that Friedman admitted to him that he had been wrong to condemn all Baconian ciphers.'

                                                                           [Noel Fermor, Baconiana, Vol. LX, No. 177, November 1977, p. 76]
