About the Book

this fantastic reproduction of the Italian written work of Leonardo da vinci with accompanying English translation organizes his disjointed notes and pages by subject and literary genre.
here is my original contribution. the author was the son of an Italian father and an Arabic mother. the mother was not married
to his father, but was probably a servant in the household. Leonardo was taught to write by an Arabic person, probably his mother, and wrote from right to left, according to the sound, with little connection to the words' spelling and length in a literate
Italian's writing. his script has an Arabic style
the works we have are notes written for his students at his academy. they are daily products which mix different subjects hourly
depending on his schedule and on his students and tutees.
