he Giunti Publishing Group, based in Florence, Italy specialise in the production of high quality, Facsimile Volumes, covering a broad scope of old manuscripts.
In years of renewed interest centred on Leonardo as a historical figure and of great attention devoted to his work as a universal message, the Giunti Publishing Group has persevered in carrying out the much needed project of a national edition of Leonardo’s complete works. This ambitious venture, begun nearly thirty years ago, is founded on the most advanced technologies for the facsimile reproduction of original documents.
In the program of the Leonardo National Commission, the most eminent Leonardo scholars have been entrusted with the task. The result of this effort is not a collection of reprints of the historic Leonardo editions but rather a new, never before attempted undertaking founded on the formidable series of facsimile reproductions of the original papers, approached critically and philologically so as to make this edition vital to the scholar as well as the layman.
The corpus of Leonardo’s work, which is thus acquiring its conclusive form, not only provides assurance that an extraordinary literary, scientific and artistic heritage will be faithfully handed down, but it becomes a means to understand, as never before, the work and thought of one of the greatest personalities in history.
In the realm of sophisticated publications, the facsimile editions are now at the unquestionable peak of greater artistic and scientific prestige. By reproducing with the utmost accuracy every detail of the original work, the facsimiles enable scholars to consult, study and admire works which are unique.
Furthermore, facsimiles are accompanied by critical editions entrusted to the major specialists who explain the history and the contents of the early works.
