This vintage book contains Alexander D Agapeyeff s famous 1939 work, Codes and Ciphers - A History of Cryptography . Cryptography is the employment of codes and ciphers to protect secrets, and it has a long and interesting history.

Contents include: The beginnings of Cryptography, From the Middle Ages Onwards, Signals, Signs, and Secret Languages, Commercial Codes, Military Codes and Ciphers, Types of Codes and Ciphers, Methods of Deciphering, etcetera.
