If you, like myself, wanted to look at the drawings of Leonardo da Vinci don't buy this book. I did not want the art work, I wanted to see how his mind worked and how he figured out the amazing ways to do things when he drew them. This book is primarily rhetoric and I have that in two other excellent books. Oxford has always meant, to me, that it was the real thing; that is unfortunately not the case with this book.

Amazon needs to clarify that this book has only a few thumbnail sketches done by Leonardo. The text is of his commentaries regarding what he reckons should constitute quality imagery, technically and aesthetically.

I was skeptical at first about the quality of this book because there were no reviews. There are in fact several sketches of Leonardo's found in the book unlike the free versions of his notebooks, but if you are looking for his notebooks with out the sketches than the free versions are the way to go. Don't be dissuaded by the free versions of Da Vinci's Notebooks, but instead spring for this copy. Trust me you won't be disappointed.

This book is better than the free versions which only have the text. However, I recommend Leonardo's Notebooks which probably has the most samples of Leonardo's sketches.

For those interested in Da Vinci's work, this is an excellent record and concisely portrays the amazing mental processes he used for his brilliant work for his entire life. Bought it as a gift for my father who is a brilliant designer himself.

This is a good review of Leonardo da Vinci's work and life. Would have been improved with more notebook images and explanations

Too small to enjoy any of the illustrations. I would go with a different version had I the chance to order again.
