The Da Vinci Code - Quest Solution (21 of 24)

This was by far the easiest challenge to date. I will be making three posts over the next three days.

The first post will give you the statistics of this blog over the 24 days of the Da Vinci Code Quest. So if you are wondering how many people are in pursuit of one of those treasured prize items, you'll be interested in this post.

The next post will be about the last day of the puzzle. If your wondering if we will give or not give out the solution to the last puzzle, you'll want to read this one.

And finally, what are we to do after the quest is over. I will blog about any topic of your choosing. If it is related to Google that would be even better, but I won't put any restrictions on it. If there is something you have always been wondering about related to Google, you will want to read and comment on this post.




My question was about the Bishop of Cavaillon. What was the reason for the second present? dog See this link. Congratulations to David who solved this challenge in the quickest time.

Post your solution to the 21st challenge in the comments below this post.

I had to play through this puzzle 5 times before I got a question google books could actually answer.

Everything I got about volumns of The Eclectic Review was a nighmare. The first question was something about Cochin China, and the volumn search didn't work. Finally I looked up just China and found that "Cochin-China" was present but NOT FINDABLE ON A SEARCH. The page I found it on did not have another page reference or an answer to the question. I replayed the puzzle several times and got similar problems.

The one that I find particularly disturbing is that I got that question about "the Bane of Youth" and spent another half hour fighting that one with no result.

I wonder what went wrong on this one.

 
At 5/07/2006 12:26 PM, Blogger Mat said...

Justin - the answer to your question is Ruskin

According to Vol. XXIII of The Eclectic Review, the only way to win the mind over to religion is by shewing it to be what?

This is hard because if you search for "eclectic review xxiii" you get a volume from 1848, which even says "Eclectic Review Vol XXIII" on its cover. But what you really want is a volume from 1825 that I can't even find in the search resuls. If you just search for 'eclectic review "shewing it to be"' the answer will come up.

According to Vol. IV of The Eclectic Review, whose art was distinguished by patient skill and slow manipulation?

Leonardo DaVinci

I found that just using "Eclectic Review" and the bolded phrase as the "exact phrase" in the Advanced book search got better results than using the volume number in the search.

 
At 5/07/2006 8:49 PM, Blogger Jay said...

I had the Eclectic Review and galleries.

also, I had to redo Fridays quiz. I spent all day yesterday doing it, and it still had not changed colors. anybody else have this problem?

 
At 5/07/2006 9:09 PM, Blogger JJ said...

I got stumped two times in a row with these awful awful book questions. If it wasn't for you commenter's suggestion of "Advanced Book Search" I would have been lost.
Why doesn't the exact same word show up when you look for it in the "Search within this book" field?
