A singular fatality has ruled the destiny of nearly all the most famous of Leonardo da Vinci's works. Two of the three most important were never completed, obstacles having arisen during his life-time, which obliged him to leave them unfinished; namely the Sforza Monument and the Wall-painting of the Battle of Anghiari, while the third-the picture of the Last Supper at Milan-has suffered irremediable injury from decay and the repeated restorations to which it was recklessly subjected during the XVIIth and XVIIIth centuries. Nevertheless, no other picture of the Renaissance has become so wellknown and popular through copies of every description.

I believe that if anyone wants to do anything on a virtuosic level, they must first study out of books from the classical tradition, and St. Paul taught, "Study to show yourselves workers approved to God." For me, three books stand above all others: The Bible, The Divine Comedy and the work being reviewed here, The Notebooks of Leonardo Da Vinci. To me, these are the three greatest books ever written, and to my way of thinking, these will never be surpassed in all of human history. These are essential to all true understanding.
