9780061136849: Leonardo da Vinci, The Treasures of

Leonardo da Vinci is often considered the master of the Renaissance and hailed as a genius ahead of his time. Most famous for such works as the Mona Lisa and The Last Supper, Leonardo da Vinci was more than a painter of extraordinary skill. In fact, he frequently regarded himself principally as a civil and military engineer.

The Treasures of Leonardo da Vinci tells the story of this artist/engineer's life and times, and looks at the major themes that dominated Leonardo's work. Beautifully illustrated, the book also contains 30 items of rare memorabilia, including:

  • the record of Leonardo's birth made by his grandfather in 1452

  • Leonardo's copy of his letter to Ludovico Sforza, the Duke of Milan from 1483

  • the passport given to Leonardo by Cesare Borgia

  • Leonardo's map of Imola

  • an extract from Leonardo's notes on machines that polish mirrors

  • pages from Antonio de Beatis's diary mentioning the Mona Lisa

The Treasures of Leonardo da Vinci is a unique guide to this most gifted of men.
