saw this one while I was wandering in the stacks and just had to take it home. It's the book on anatomy that da Vinci never published, but had several finished plates for. This was a translation of each plate and his notes along with a photo of each plate. It's interesting to see what his fixations were in a time when there was not much accuracy about anatomy. All of his bodies are "exaggerated"-old men with very muscular bodies, etc.Just kind of a fun read to pick up and peruse.
