To the Editor:—
The review concerning Leonardo da Vinci: Das Anatomische Werk (not Work) (JAMA178:970 [Dec. 2] 1961) reveals a factual error. Anyone mentioning the Arc de Triomphe unmistakably refers to the magnificent triumphal arch situated in Place de l'Etoile in Paris. It commemorates the victories of Napoleon I, was begun in 1806, and completed in 1836. On the other hand, the architect of the Colonnade du Louvre is usually named with his first name, Claude, to distinguish him from his no less famous brother, Charles Perrault, the immortal author of the Tales of Mother Goose.
