The anatomical tables are saved in the Royal Library of Windsor. It is the most important collection of human body drawings, which Leonardo created between 1485 and 1515.

They were drown with a red and black pencil and  they document Leonardo’s study, which was made directly on the human body dissecting more than thirty cadavers.

The drawings had lost their form because of the rubbing of the codex pages. In 1994, the Windsor papers were isolated and placed in two Perspex sheets to give a right protection and a complete vision without  damaging the surface. Since 1690 this codex belongs to the English Royal Family and it has 234 papers (cm. 48x35). After Leone Pompeo’s death, his heirs sold it in an antiquarian market of Madrid, in Spain, where the sculptor brought all Leonardo’s codices to his disposal. In 1630, the collector Thomas Howard Count of Arundel belonged it but because of the civil war or some events or his initiative he left the Royal House.
