Language note
"The present translation is based on the texts as they survive in Warburg's three manuscripts in the Warburg Institute Archive (WIA, III.49.1.1, WIA, III.49.2.1 and WIA, III.49.3.1). As these lectures were delivered in public, the English versions do not take account of crossed-out passages or annotations in the German, and Warburg's sentence structure, which is at times complex, has occasionally been simplified. Quotations from other authors are mostly translated from the original language using, where possible, editions that were available to Warburg; instances of this are noted. Where Warburg's translation deviates significantly from the original, the English version follows his translation into German."--Introduction, p. 7

Note
"This special publication -- containing the full text of Aby Warburg's unpublished lectures on Leonardo -- celebrates no fewer than three anniversaries. The first is the 500th anniversary of the death of Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) ... The second is the 120th anniversary of the three lectures on Leonardo's life and works, delivered in 1899 by the pioneering art historian Aby Warburg (1866-1929), in his hometown of Hamburg. The third is the 75th anniversary of the 1944 Trust Deed that gave the Institute created by Warburg to the University of London, where it now sits at the heart of the University's Bloomsbury campus -- and where it remains the only academic institution rescued from Nazi Germany to survive intact in Britain today ... They have been specially commissioned from (and delivered at great speed by) the gifted translator Joseph Spooner, under the expert guidance of our Archivist Claudia Wedepohl and Assistant Archivist Eckart Marchand -- who are currently preparing the text for the first full edition in German. It was Claudia who had the idea of producing this publication; and it was Eckart who (along with the Institute's Manager Madisson Brown) coordinated work on the translation as well as the accompanying exhibition curated by the Institute's MA students Hannah Clapinson, Clementine Bowring, Tereze Lujane and Helena Rutkowska ... We are delighted, finally, that Professor John Prag (Aby Warburg's grandson) agreed to deliver a selection from these lectures at a special end-of-year event."--Foreword, p. 5
