Product Description

In 1998 a medieval prayer book sold for $2 million dollars at Christie's auction house in New York- to an anonymous bidder. Now, a nearly a decade later, experts at Baltimore's Walters Art Museum are learning the full extent of its value. While masked as a simple prayer book the contents of this irreplaceble document were none other than original recordings of Archimedes scientific revelations. In 'The Archimedes Codex' Stanford professor Reviel Netz and and Walters art curator William Noel join forces to tell the full story. This amazing tale of history, science, philosophy, and religion is uniquely engrossing.
