The Treasury Orbucan

Orbucan is the legend of the mysterious enigma hidden treasure. If decrypts the key hidden in the picture "The letter from the Island of San Juan de Puerto Rico" the book of J. Edgar Howl "The Treasure of Orbucán," will know the exact whereabouts where he is buried pirate treasure of the nineteenth century.

Perhaps the real pirates were not so picturesque but today we all imagined the case. And, in part, we owe it to the man who started this whole story: Howard Pyle (1853-1911) was an important American artist, considered the father of the golden era of enlightenment in the United States, and especially famous for writing and illustrate "The Book of Pirates."
To be documented, Pyle collected over the years manuscripts and information about privateers and pirates, creating a comprehensive historical record. Of all those material and his talent was born artísitico the mythical book in hand. In it we found some drawings full of detail and realism which perhaps begins the romantic image we have of pirates.
These images are notable for their strength and a personal style that marked school. With them, Pyle was the forerunner of the Golden Age of American Illustration. Many of his disciples were in turn masters of illustration, and is one of them, Edgar J. Howl, the linchpin of this whole story.
One of the works attributed to J. Edgar Howl (1873 -¿?), is the book "The Treasure of Orbucán." Artistically can not be considered very valuable, but this book holds a fascinating and enigmatic mystery that has remained hidden for a long time. Now, almost a century later, the enigma of "The Treasure of Orbucán" come to light.

"The Treasure of Orbucán" narrates, with the help of a dozen illustrations, the adventures of the pirate Roberto Cofresi (1791-1825). This figure is considered little more than a hero in Puerto Rico, his homeland, was the terror of the ships and the Spanish authorities during the early eighteenth century.

But the most amazing book is believed to be hiding in their illustrations, in the form of clues and coded messages, the exact point where Cofresi hid one of his treasures.
It seems that in the days when J. Edgar Howl attended school in Howard Pyle, who disappeared from the archives of the teacher an invaluable document: a new map indicating the exact hideout of the treasure that was stolen at Cofresi Orbucán Spanish galleon. And curiously, was himself Howl student who was working on the story of the pirate.

As was confirmed later in the diary of Professor Willliam R. Newbold, Howl chose to hide the keys on the map in the book in which he was working: "The Treasure of Orbucán." This will not disappear assured that the tracks leading to the coveted treasure, hiding in encrypted form on those innocent pictures.
The book "The Treasure of Orbucán" of J. Edgar Howl was published in 1907 by an imprint of Willminton, Delaware, United States, though in a short run and little success. It is unknown whether the holders of the book knew the existence of an encrypted message in their artwork. In the biography of Howl does not undertake any trip continued with their daily lives and rather humble, which will most likely never had the opportunity to go to find the treasure. Everything seemed to indicate that the mystery of Cofresi was going to be unresolved. But a few years later, William R. Newbold (1865-1926), a professor at the University of Pennsylvania, addressed return to "dig up".
William R. Newbold: a renowned cryptographer and stubborn.

Wiilliam R. Neewbold was an expert esteganógrafo and cryptographer at the University of Pennsylvania. Newbold will be remembered in that community, especially for his research on the Voynich manuscript, a document surrounded by mystery that dates from the thirteenth century. After exhaustive and obsessive analysis, Professor Newbold drew from his research that proved the existence of the manuscript microscope and at that early age.
By 1916 he was the mystery of "The Treasure of Orbucán" which he held research and obsessions of the teacher. It seems that the book came into its possession through Violet Oakley (1874-1961), a renowned local artist, to paint murals in the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, and was a student of Pyle. She was able to talk to Newbold of the enigma surrounding those illustrations.

Newbold investigated and analyzed in detail the illustrations in the book, scoring all their advances and discoveries in a personal journal or notebook. This document is a key piece that demonstrates the excellent analytical skills and Deductive of Professor Newbold, and where the solution is collected from eight of the nine illustrations in the book, but not in the ninth and most important.

Some time later, Newbold used those skills Deductive getting squarely in another intriguing mystery: the Voynich manuscript. This project was a turning point in the life of mature professor and the scientific community, in principle thrilled with his theory about the existence of the microscope of the hands of Roger Bacon, ended up rejecting his hypothesis. The prestigious cryptographer John Manly also was charged with leaving the teacher publicly evident and it was unsuccessful. He died in 1926 and their contemporaries blamed his death to his madness following the mysterious Voynich manuscript.

I see a treasure 86 years later.
2001. A server, Ivan Fuentes, the newspaper found by chance by William R. Newbold. My girlfriend Daniela works in the shop of an antiques restoration, in Tarifa, Cadiz (Spain). On April 4 2001, I accompanied some furniture to put in a home that evicted. Among them were an old trunk that the owner of the house sold with its contents. It was in that trunk where Daniela found some old documents, including a book written in English, quite yellowed leaves, with annotations and drawings, and I gave them.
As I drew attention to the drawings, scribbles and signs that accompanied the text, I began to translate. At the end I had to ask for help from my friend Pablo Diaz, because it was a fairly convoluted language. And just as I was involved in all of history. Once translated, researched all I could about the characters who star in this story so fascinating to see if they found any clue to help me decipher the picture that resists.

The last unsolved mystery.
For a time, with the help of friends and people around the world who contacted me in my previous site, tried unsuccessfully to resolve the key that hides in the most recent illustration, and that I knew through the endorsements of the journal Newbold. According to him, the key is the fine line of text that are attached to the frame, where you can read the following two sets of letters:
Like Newbold, now I have never managed to clarify that the paragraph says. For a while I forgot about this whole affair, but this year I have come back to resume. This is due in part to the support of Orbucán but mainly because I remain convinced that if I found the newspaper in Spain, that means the treasure could also be here.
It is necessary to know what lies behind the words that appear in this illustration. Only in this way, discovering the whereabouts and going again to find the treasure, we'll know if, as I suspect, it is still there ... waiting for someone to find it.


El Tesoro del Orbucan

La leyenda del Orbucan es el misterioso enigma que esconde un tesoro. Si se descifra la clave oculta en la ilustración “La carta de la Isla de San Juan de Puerto Rico” del libro de Edgar J. Howles “El Tesoro del Orbucán”, se sabrá el paradero exacto donde está enterrado un tesoro pirata del siglo XIX.

Quizás los auténticos piratas no eran tan pintorescos pero hoy en día todos nos los imaginamos así. Y, en parte, se lo debemos al hombre que comenzó toda esta historia: Howard Pyle (1853-1911) fue un importantísimo artista americano, considerado el padre de la era de oro de la ilustración en Estados Unidos, y famoso sobre todo por escribir e ilustrar “El libro de los Piratas”.
Para documentarse, Pyle recopiló durante años manuscritos e información sobre corsarios y piratas, creando un exhaustivo archivo histórico. De todo aquel material y de su talento artísitico nació el mítico libro que nos ocupa. En él encontramos unos dibujos llenos de realismo y detalle donde quizás se inicia la romántica imagen que tenemos de los piratas.
Estas imágenes destacan por su fuerza y por un estilo propio que marcó escuela. Con ellas, Pyle fue el precursor de la Época Dorada de la Ilustración Americana. Muchos de sus discípulos fueron a su vez grandes maestros de la ilustración, y es uno de ellos, Edgar J. Howles, la pieza clave de toda esta historia.
Una de las obras atribuidas a Edgar J. Howles (1873-¿?), es el libro “El Tesoro del Orbucán”. Artísticamente no puede considerarse muy valiosa; sin embargo, esta obra encierra un apasionante y enigmático misterio que ha permanecido oculto durante mucho tiempo. Ahora, casi un siglo después, el enigma de “El Tesoro del Orbucán” sale a la luz.

“El Tesoro del Orbucán” narra, con la ayuda de una docena de ilustraciones, las aventuras del pirata Roberto Cofresí (1791-1825). Este personaje, considerado poco menos que un héroe en Puerto Rico, su tierra natal, fue el terror de las naves y las autoridades españolas ...
