Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is an excellent selection, with a lot of breadth and depth!"—F.W. Blackwell, Washington State Univ.

"Excellent text for intermediate and upper level courses on the arts and man. Selections are adequate and edited well. Leonardo's ideas are difficult but the translations and brief commentaries at the beginning of each section are helpful to the student and make these ideals accessible to the average student."—Orville V. Clark, University of Wisconsin—Green Bay

"Excellent introduction to one of the most complex aspects of Leonardo's art."—Norman Land, University of Missouri
