However, entirely self-taught, Leonardo was also endlessly curious about the physical world. His amazing notebooks reveal the breadth of his research into areas as diverse as anatomy, architecture, botany, geometry, mathematics, physics and engineering, including many anticipations of modern technology.

As with all the titles in this amazing pocket-sized series, hundreds of illustrations of paintings, sketches and designs are closely integrated with detailed, fascinating texts and contemporary documents.
