Summary Considered to be the work of Leonardo when it was acquired by Constantine Huygens in 1690, this illustrated manuscript does not in fact contain a single orignal drawing by Leonardo da Vinci. Its authorship still in question, this mid sixteenth-century work has been attributed to, among others, Aurelio Luini, Girolamo Figino, and Carlo Urbino.
