«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».

In the Center, each idiom circumscribed perceptions of what was Latino from that which was North American, yet these were also in some circumstances juxtaposed to enunciate the ways in which the two categories could be combined.
