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.

Carrefour has refused to play this game. In a way that would have been unacceptable and outright illegal in other industrial nations, several leading wholesalers publicly refused to work with Carrefour. Various reasons were given, but the fact that Carrefour refused to guarantee price demands was the key, unspoken issue. In another case, and in keeping with the need for social harmony, senior executives at Nihon Shurui Hanbai, the largest liquor wholesaler in Japan, freely announced that they would only supply Carrefour if their other (Japanese) retail customers agreed, and then on the understanding that Carrefour would not sell below wholesale price, so undercutting competitors (see Nikkei Ryutsu Shinbun 2001).

As Nemoto and Tamehiro (2001) illustrates, Metro is likely to have a far smoother time, partly as it does not have the stigma of being first, but mainly because it is operating within an 80–20 joint venture with Marubeni, another major trading house. Marubeni has significant supermarket and food wholesaling interests of its own International retailing in Japan 29 and financial analysts have been highly sceptical of the choice of partner, but Metro no doubt hopes the tie-up will ease relations with suppliers, even though it more or less locks the company out of working with members of the other major trading groups.
