Francesco di Giorgio, Trattato di architettura civile e militare
Biblioteca Medicea Laurenziana, Florence, Ms. Ashb. 361, 27v-28r
This codex was read and annotated by Leonardo in Florence around 1506. Unsatisfied by Francesco di Giorgio's definition, Leonardo makes a distinction between "mathematical point" and "natural point" in a note to this sheet.
[III.1AThe World of the "Arts"]

Leonardo was primarily an engineer and an artist; in this environment he worked and spent most of his life, drawing from it crucially important intellectual stimuli. This section documents some of the most significant of these, which contributed in various ways to defining the concepts developed by Leonardo in the fields of painting, sculpture, architecture and military art.
