Pacioli, Luca (1445–1517)
At his death, Paciola left unpublished a major book, De viribus amanuensis, on recreational problems, geometrical problems, and proverbs. This makes frequent reference to Leonardo, who assisted him with the project: many of the problems in this treatise are also in Leonardo's notebooks. Again it is a work for which Pacioli claimed no originality, describing it as a compendium.
