The series of popular texts dedicated to Leonardo da Vinci (Vinci 1452 - Amboise 1519) continues with a new book regarding the manuscripts. In this volume all known manuscripts are presented: the intact codices as the manuscripts now at the Institut de France in Paris, the codices dismantled in a series of drawings as the Royal Collection at Windsor and the miscellaneous codices such as the famous Codex Atlanticus (Milan, Biblioteca Ambrosiana). Graphic notes, drawings and texts - sometimes written from left to right and in other cases written in the ordinary sense - are a great deal of material for to understand Leonardo, the multiplicity of his interests, his ability to work on more projects, often very different, at the same time. In the Leonardo's manuscripts is possible to identify notes on painting, notes on perspective, studies of light and the shadow and colour theory, studies of human and animal anatomy, drawings and writings on architecture, machine projects, philosophical speculations and novels and prophecies, personal notes, notes on botany and zoology, geography and topography, astrology and music. Through the manuscripts can be followed all the Leonardo's production from the early years to the French period, precisely to June 24, 1518 (Codex Atlanticus, f. 673r , ex 249rb).In addition to the presentation of all the codices in the book is presented the history of da Vinci's manuscripts and the one section is dedicated to the Book of painting.
