This book contains all of Leonardo Da Vinci's drawings on the heart and its physiology, accompanied by re-translations of all of the associated notes. All Leonardo's drawings have been interpreted in the light of modern knowledge by a practicing cardiac clinician and anatomist. The veracity of his work is proven against contemporary dissections of cardiac structure and comparison of his illustrations with contemporary images generated by Magnetic Resonance scanners and high definition ultrasound will astound the reader. Perhaps the most interesting element is the re-dissection of the Ox heart set against Leonardo's own drawings. His place in the greater scheme of anatomical development will be put into context with his ideas of man's place in the microcosm/macrocosm continuum.

From the book reviews:

Selected as "Highly Commended" at BMA Medical Book Awards for 2014.

"It will be of interest to many others and I hope it reaches the audience it deserves. This is a lovely book. Those few who are specifically interested in Leonardo's work on the heart will find much of value and I hope it is read by artists, art historians and surgeons, who will fine ... that the encounter with Leonardo's work is intellectually stimulating." (BMA Medical Book Awards, September, 2014)
