History: "Leonardo Da Vinci's Codex Madrid II" is a continuation of the part one. It was written in 1503, and contains his own personal notes and inventions.  Contents include mechanics, statics, and geometry. The entire codex is written in Da Vinci’s own unique handwriting style, an Italian dialect, and also backwards.

Reproduction Details: The hardcover books are made with two pieces of real wood on the inside. The leather is a 4 oz cowhide, from a small supplier in New York state. The Glue we use to attach the leather to the wood is made at our facility, and is a period correct wheat glue. Along the spine, we use a modern perfect binding, with modern glue, to make the binding last longer. We also add three layers of mull cloth to the outside of the perfect binding, drying in between each layer, which is a traditional way to make the binding stiff, strong, and resilient.

Note: All of our facsimiles are made to order. Please allow 4-6 weeks for notification of shipment.
