Описание: В 1966 году в Национальной библиотеке в Мадриде были обнаружены два манускрипта, написанные Леонардо. Когда-то они не были учтены при каталогизации, и об их существовании не было известно. Этим двум манускриптам дали условные названия «Мадридский кодекс I» и «Мадридский кодекс II».
«Мадридский кодекс I» состоит из 192 листов 1490—1499 годов написания, содержащих изображения различных механизмов и изложения теории механики. Хотя работа и посвящена механике, в ней есть заметки по астрономии и по оптике.
«Мадридский кодекс II» был создан Леонардо в 1503—1505 гг. и состоит из 158 листов. Он собрал исследования в области геометрии, такие, например, как «квадратуры круга». Кроме этого, в нём содержатся работы по перспективе и оптике. В книге можно найти эскизы морских и топографических карт, рассматриваются проблемы военной техники и архитектуры. Самое интересное в этом кодексе — неосуществлённый проект изменения русла реки Арно, эскизы фрески «Битва при Ангиари» и конного памятника Франческо Сфорца.
