Leonardo Da Vinci: The Marvellous Works of Nature and Man

By Martin Kemp | Go to book overview

Bibliography

Although this necessarily selective list has been compiled specifically to acknowledge the sources which have played the most prominent roles in the preparation of this book in its orginal form and to a lesser extent in its revised version, I hope it will also serve the needs of anyone who wishes to pursue further investigations through the citing of standard source and reference works. Inevitably, I have been able to list only a small selection of even the important literature that has poured forth from 1981 to 2005.

The bibliography is classified in sections corresponding to the divisions of the text. Within the first section I have included all those sources and authors mentioned in the prefaces. Within the sections relating to each chapter, the sources are arranged in an order broadly corresponding to the sequence of subjects in the text. Reference to previously cited literature is by number.

The journal Raccolta Vinciana, ed. P. Marani in Milan, publishes important bibliographical updates, as did Achademia Leonardi Vinci, ed. C. Pedretti.
