天才的科学者、芸術家のダビンチの知られざる記述.. Bill Gatesが$30 millionも払ったと言う..
In 1994, he purchased Leonardo da Vinci's "Codex Leicester," a manuscript that dates back to the 16th century. He paid $30.8 million for the journal at auction, a price that made it the most expensive book ever sold.
Gates has put the notebook out on loan to select museums this summer. Currently on view at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the Codex Leicester will travel to the North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh on October 31.
Before Minneapolis, the manuscript was on exhibit at the Phoenix Art Museum.
Written between the years of 1506 and 1510, the 72-page notebook provides a rare glimpse inside da Vinci's mind, complete with sketches, diagrams, and early iterations of ideas.
