Description

Notes and sketches of parachute experiments on flying machine wings by Leonardo da Vinci. Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) was an Italian painter, sculptor, architecht, engineer, and the outstanding all-round genius of the Renaisance period. He had a wide knowledge and understanding far beyond his times of most of the sciences, including biology, anatomy, physiology, hydrodynamics, mechanics and aeronautics. His notebooks, written in mirror writing, contain original remarks on all of these areas.
