A large part of the texts published in this section might perhaps have found their proper place in connection with the foregoing chapters on Physical Geography. But these observations on Physical Geography, of whatever kind they may be, as soon as they are localised acquire a special interest and importance and particularly as bearing on the question whether Leonardo himself made the observations recorded at the places mentioned or merely noted the statements from hearsay

When I first purchased this book, I was looking for Leonardo's drawings, sketches and art studies. For this, the book is fair and has a nice collection of his drawings, even though I wish they were bigger and the printing on paper more vivid. But what really surprised me on this book was his writings on several subjects. Some of his studies on anatomy, perspective, light/shade and his vision on art itself were priceless. Its nice to see a little bit on how this great artist thought. Its also nice to see how persistent and dedicated he was as an artist and how he suggests an artist to go through his studies:

"If you wish to have a sound knowledge of the forms of subjects begin with the details of them and do not go on to the second step till you have the first well fixed in memory and in practice. And if you do otherwise you will throw away your time, or certainly greatly prolong your studies"

So, if you wish to purchase this book, only for its images, you would do a better deal, purchasing "Leonardo da Vinci: The Complete Paintings and Drawings" from Taschen. But, if you wish to read his notes on several of his drawings, this is the book to purchase.

Great way to get several of Leonardo's notes all in one place. This book focuses on the writings - there are pictures too, but don't expect a picture for everything in the book because they aren't the focus. It can sometimes be difficult to match up the writings with some of the pictures, though I guess this isn't really avoidable. I also bought a separate book that focuses on the pictures, and between the two I am pretty happy.
I realize the man left behind something like 6,000 pages of drawings and notes (and who knows how much else lost to time), so it's almost impossible to get all of the notes in one volume and this book does a pretty good job of selecting interesting comments. There are a few things I found myself wishing for here and there, though some of it could be more personal preference than objective omissions.
I got this in paperback style, and it is bound fairly well. I do see the pages eventually falling out if I were to read it a lot but not right away.

Sure it's not the complete works; however, you can find them in most college libraries. This is a handy personal collection with excellent quality reproductions of the illustrations.

This book far exceeded my expectations. The reproductions of the sketches are excellent varied and profuse. I especially enjoy reading the vignettes accompanying them, As an artist, I feel having this as a reference is consistently supportive of much of my creative efforts. I bought a "used" book and the condition was much better than what I expected. I definitely have no regrets.

Humbling... to say the least. His sentiments are poetry-as if he speaking to me, and me alone.
He's a remarkale man.

I love that Leonardo determined a way to keep figures in correct proportion and that his method works every time!

Truly fascinating. An excellent book that should be read AFTER the biography by Isaacson, also a must read.

Beautiful book, lots of reproductions of actual notes and sketches.
