Excellent on every level 16 Nov. 1997
By Andrew Badalamenti - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I read Mr. Kemp's book and feel that he really did his homework. Mr. Kemp clearly shows what knowledge was available to Leonardo and explains where he made his leaps of genius in the realms of scientific, medical and artistic discovery. The book is a work of great scholarship and really helps the reader to understand one of the greatest minds of the Renaissance or any age for that matter.
