Excerpt from Monna Lisa: Or the Quest of the Woman Soul

The original of the following translation was a dilapidated manuscript discovered in a heap of rubbish in one of the old palaces of Florence which was undergoing alterations. This manuscript was undoubtedly one of the lost works of the great artist Leonardo da Vinci. The chirography was certainly his, written backward with the left hand, from right to left, and requiring the use of a mirror to decipher it. There was also his characteristic spelling, together with his peculiar fashion of often running two or three words into one to suit his convenience or the whim of the moment. Besides, many passages were of similar import to others which have been made known through the facsimile reproductions of Leonardo's writings, and from which it has been shown that it was a common habit of the artist to write out over and over in different phraseology those thoughts that seemed to have especially pleased him.
