And that's renaissance magic ...

After lying almost untouched in the vaults of an Italian university for years, a book on the magic arts written by Leonardo da Vinci's best friend and teacher has been translated into English for the first time. It was written in Italian by Pacioli between and and contains the first ever reference to card tricks as well as guidance on how to juggle, eat fire and make coins dance. It is also the first work to note that Da Vinci was left-handed. Although the book has been described as the "foundation of modern magic and numerical puzzles", it was never published and has languished in the archives of the University of Bologna, seen only by a small number of scholars since the Middle Ages. The transcription has taken eight years, involved several translators and cost thousands of pounds.
