Zheng He and the Italian Renaissance

Mariano Taccola – “Dei Ingeneis” – 1433.

Taccola was employed as a clerk of works. Before 1431 he had not produced a single drawing. Suddenly (using his own dates), at the end of 1431 he starts writing “ Dei Ingeneis” which he finishes on 13th January 1433. His book is crammed with hundreds of ingenious inventions accompanied by descriptions. A list of 107 of them are attached in an appendix. By comparing these with Leonardo’s( i.e. Prager and Scaglia’s reproductions with the Madrid Codices and the Collection of Leonardo’s drawings at Windsor Castle), one can see from where Leonardo obtained many ideas on civil engineering and military machines.
Each of Taccola’s inventions had been invented by the Chinese prior to 1432.
