This edition includes the complete notebooks (volume one and two). Most of what we know about Leonardo da Vinci, we know because of his notebooks. Some 6,000 sheets of notes and drawings survive, perhaps one-fifth of what he actually produced. With an artist's eye and a scientist's curiosity, he recorded in these pages his observations on the movement of water and the formation of rocks, the nature of flight and optics, anatomy, architecture, sculpture, and painting. He jotted down fables, epigrams, and letters and developed his belief in the sublime unity of nature and man. Through his notebooks we can get an insight into Leonardo's thoughts, and his approach to work and life.

Review:

"This is an excellent selection, with a lot of breadth and depth!"--F.W. Blackwell, Washington State Univ.
"Excellent text for intermediate and upper level courses on the arts and man. Selections are adequate and edited well. Leonardo's ideas are difficult but the translations and brief commentaries at the beginning of each section are helpful to the student and make these ideals accessible to the
average student."--Orville V. Clark, University of Wisconsin--Green Bay
"Excellent introduction to one of the most complex aspects of Leonardo's art."--Norman Land, University of Missouri
