Briefly Noted: The British Library “Treasures” iPad App


CNET (“British Library app brings Beowulf, The Beatles“) has a better rundown of the app contents than you’ll find on iTunes:

• The Gutenberg Bible, Lindisfarne Gospels, and Sultan Baybars’ Qur’an;

• Handwritten lyrics by The Beatles;

• Original scores by Mozart, Schubert, Handel, and Purcell;

• Charles Dickens’ handwritten draft of “Nicholas Nickleby”;

• The writings of Jane Austen as a teenager;

• Letters by Galileo and notebooks from Leonardo da Vinci;

• And it’s the British Library, so of course there has to be a version of the Magna Carta from 1215.


Here’s a link to the British Library app on iTunes.
