dc.description.abstractText taken from page i: "The part of Leonardo's literary legacy which forms the basis for the present study has since Manzi 's publication of the Codex Vaticanus commonly been known as the Paragon. The only copy we have of the Paragon is contained in this Vatican codex, which is accepted as a middle sixteenth century copy from the original manu- scripts of Leonardo. Because it appears here with the rest of the so-called Book on Painting, it has been published only in connection with that. However, it forms a distinct division. The rest of the Codex deals with the theory and practice of painting, while the main thesis of the Paragon is the comparison of the arts of painting, poetry, music, and sculpture. For this reason, and because there is more direct evidence for believing that Leonardo intended the Paragon as a separate treatise I feel myself justified in so presenting it."eng
