This manuscript originally contained 100 sheets, but was mutilated by Guglielmo Libri in the mid-nineteenth century, and now contains only 90. The
missing folios, sold to Lord Ashburnham by Libri, were returned to the Institut de France in 1891. This is the oldest surviving original manuscript of
Leonardo. It contains studies of military technology, centrally planned churches, and projects for the "ideal city" and for the flying-machine.
Looks pretty similar huh? I'll find more similar manuscripts.
