About this title


Since the discovery of Leonardo da Vinci's legendary Codex Romanoff in 1981, speculation as to how it will affect our understanding of Leonardo has grown rapidly. Here, for the first time in English, is the whole of the Codex, annotated and translated by two of the finest Leonardo enthusiasts of our day, displaying the details of Leonardo's experimental recipes, his collation of the thoughts of his contemporaries on Renaissance cuisine, his devices for reducing labour in the kitchen (which can now be seen to have been misunderstood in the past), and notes on his attempted improvements to manners and etiquette at the Sforza court in Milan.
