Divina proportione 15th century Italian for Divine proportion , later also called De divina proportione converting the Italian title into a Latin one is a book on mathematics written by Luca Pacioli and illustrated by Leonardo da Vinci , composed around in Milan and first printed in The clarity of the written material and Leonardo's excellent diagrams helped the book to achieve an impact beyond mathematical circles, popularizing contemporary geometric concepts and images.
The book consists of three separate manuscripts,  which Pacioli worked on between and He credits Fibonacci as the main source for the mathematics he presents.
Luca Pacioli: Father of Accounting
The first part, Compendio divina proportione Compendium on the Divine Proportion , studies the golden ratio from a mathematical perspective following the relevant work of Euclid and explores its applications to various arts, in seventy-one chapters. The second part, Trattato dell'architettura Treatise on Architecture , discusses the ideas of Vitruvius from his De architectura on the application of mathematics to architecture in twenty chapters.
The text compares the proportions of the human body to those of artificial structures, with examples from classical Greco-Roman architecture. The third part, Libellus in tres partiales divisus Book divided into three parts , is mainly an Italian translation of Piero della Francesca 's Latin writings On [the] Five Regular Solids " De quinque corporibus regularibus "  and mathematical examples.
After these three parts are appended two sections of illustrations, the first showing twenty-three capital letters drawn with a ruler and compass by Pacioli and the second with some sixty illustrations in woodcut after drawings by Leonardo da Vinci. Leonardo's drawings are probably the first illustrations of skeletonic solids which allowed an easy distinction between front and back.
Another collaboration between Pacioli and Leonardo existed: Pacioli planned a book of mathematics and proverbs called De Viribus Quantitatis The powers of numbers which Leonardo was to illustrate, but Pacioli died before he could publish it.
Much more than documents.
Pacioli produced three manuscripts of the treatise by different scribes. A second copy was donated to Galeazzo da Sanseverino and now rests at the Biblioteca Ambrosiana in Milan.
The third, which has gone missing, was given to Pier Soderini , the Gonfaloniere of Florence. The book was displayed as part of an exhibition in Milan between October and October together with the Codex Atlanticus.
