Title: Leonardo da Vinci: The Codex Leicester - Notebook of a Genius
Description: Powerhouse Publishing, Sydney, 2000. Quarto gate-fold paperback; 168pp., monochrome plates. Mild spotting to text block edges; rubbed covers with wear and chipping to edges and corners. Very good. The Codex Leicester (also briefly known as Codex Hammer) is a collection of scientific writings by Leonardo da Vinci. The Codex is named after Thomas Coke, later created Earl of Leicester, who purchased it in 1719. The manuscript currently holds the record for the second highest sale price of any book, as it was sold to Bill Gates at Christie's auction house on 11 November 1994 in New York for US$30,802,500. The Codex provides an insight into the inquiring mind of the definitive Renaissance artist, scientist and thinker as well as an exceptional illustration of the link between art and science and the creativity of the scientific process.
