From the instructions, we can see that the original book has been subjected to an update which involves some simplifications such as ignoring the 5-letter groups:



Three of the 4 spelling tables have been omitted. Note that the numbers used for spelling overlap other groups and so the group that precedes a spelt word also defines the number of letters.


Worked example: (Note only repeated goup is 'Marseilles')


More groups to assist with interpreting multiple options:


Front cover, title page and contents pages

Codebook proper

Dates and numbers

Spelling system
