This family-friendly novel is fifth in the historically based series, "The Life and Travels of Da Vinci" (though they can be enjoyed in any order).

The story begins in a small town in the Italian Peninsula in 1503. Leonardo has been working as a military advisor for the ruthless Cesare Borgia for almost a year, and that employment is about to come to an end. But first, Borgia wants Leonardo to accompany him to Rome to see his father, Pope Alexander.

Leonardo enjoys his first time in Rome in the company of his old friend, Donato Bramante, before returning to Florence, his home of many decades. Once back in Florence Leonardo is finally ready to return to painting - to take up a paintbrush once again. Over the next several years he will tackle two of his largest projects - the Battle of Anghiari and the portrait we have all come to know and love as the Mona Lisa.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
