Pierre Duhem as an historian is most well-known for his discovery of the medieval physicists who laid the foundation for Galileo's physics. Before this work, no book-length English translation of Duhem's history of medieval physics existed.
This is an English translation of:
- Pierre Maurice Marie Duhem, Études sur Léonard de Vinci, ceux qu’il a lus et ceux qui l’ont lu, vol. 3 (Les Précurseurs Parisiens de Galilée) of 3. (Paris: A. Hermann, 1913).
