Here you can browse through the minutiae of a genius' observations about the world around him--from flight, the human body, the nature of water, proportion, optics, movement and weight. What will impress you on every fascinating page is the universality of Leonardo's thirst for knowledge, making him truly the epitome of the 'Renaissance man,' and perhaps the last human who can truly be called a polymath: 'the natural desire of good men is knowledge.'
