Unknown 5-7-2019

Here’s a randomly generated cipher of unknown type. Two ID tests put the correct type on top and one put it in second place. My hill-climber solved it without a crib. The plaintext looks like it’s from a list of references. I’ll add a caesar-shifted crib.

  1. My hillclimber solved it, but I’m having difficulty finding a continuation to post. It appears to be from a bibliography, footnote, or reference list of some kind and I’m finding the names and titles in many places, but not in the exact order in the ciphertext. My Analyzer placed the correct type in first place by a good margin.
