The gift of the Codex Atlanticus to the George Arents Research Library by the Class of 1912 and Chester Soling is a generous gesture of scholastic importance. Publishers are the Johnson Reprint Corporation, a subsidiary of Harcourt Brace Jovanovich and Centro Editoriale Giuinti, of Florence.
The Codex is a collation of sections from many of Leonardo Da Vinci's notebooks, compiled by Pompeo Leoni, a sixteenth century sculptor who came to acquire them through the descendants of Leonardo's devoted disciple, Francesco Melzi.
