5. The Anatomical Drawings of Leonardo da Vinci: Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) possessed one of the greatest minds of all time; his importance and influence are inestimable. Leonardo's drawings reveal his brilliant draftsmanship and his mastery of anatomy. Many of his drawings can be found in the principal European collections; the largest group is at Windsor Castle in England. Leonardo was a Florentine artist, one of the great masters of the High Renaissance, celebrated as a painter, sculptor, architect, engineer, and scientist. His profound love of knowledge and research was the keynote of both his artistic and scientific endeavors. His scientific studies- particularly in the fields of anatomy, optics, and hydraulics - anticipated many of the developments of modern science. 44 Full Color Images in a view-able, thumbnail presentation.

About Our CDs

Many of our CDs are composed of collections of multiple texts and documents concentrating on specific regions or subject areas. Many contain 5, 10 or more separate publications. Each CD is truly a reference BONANZA to the home historian with thousands of pages of research information. The age of most of these text make them inaccessible to the average researcher. Naturally their scarcity and fragility makes them very expensive to acquire hence often kept under lock and key in an effort to preserve them. Unfortunately this also makes them unavailable for public view. Our CDs are produced by scanning the actual pages of the original text making them not only excellent resources but archival copies available for future generations. If you could find a hard copy of any of these books it would cost hundreds of dollars - individually worth many times the cost of a CD. The average cost of a single CD, containing our "theme or regional" based collections has been kept affordable in an effort to make this information obtainable to as many home researchers as possible.
Our CDs have become the ultimate research tool. Having a copy on hand allows research at your leisure and your schedule while in the comfort of your home. Additionally you can still print individual or groups of pages as you need directly from your CDs. Giving you the best of both old and new research techniques. Unless otherwise noted most pdf Files are now searchable. Searchable pdf files allow single or multiple file searches with one search request.
Our CDs are designed to be easily used even for those new to computers. The opening menu, which opens much like a web page (utilizing your browser and a link like navigation system), is easily navigated and extremely user friendly.
