Written between the years of 1506 and 1510, the Codex Leicester is one of Leonardo da Vinci’s notebooks, providing a rare glimpse into the mind of the prototypical Renaissance man. The manuscript contains sketches concerning the relationships between the Earth, the moon, and the stars, as well as copious notes (written backwards) regarding da Vinci’s thoughts on tides, eddies, and dams. In 1994, Bill Gates bought the original Codex for more than $30 million and scanned some of the pages to be used as backgrounds on Windows computers.
