The Atlanticus is a twelve-volume series of handwritten notebooks in which he documented his ideas and studies on a great variety of subjects, from botany to weaponry. These private scribbles give us a peek into the brain of a prolific man, and have allowed us to recognize his endeavours although half a millenium has passed since.
