Project Gutenberg (who make freely available online out-of-copyright books) has created a text version of the Notebooks of Leonardo Da Vinci. You can download it whole, or subscribe, as I've done, to a RSS feed of one entry per day. It will take four years to read the whole thing, but the first few days' entries have been very promising.
Begun at Florence, in the house of Piero di Braccio Martelli, on
the 22nd day of March 1508. And this is to be a collection without
