CNET (“British Library app brings Beowulf, The Beatles“)Â has a better rundown of the app contents than you’ll find on iTunes:
â€¢Â The Gutenberg Bible, Lindisfarne Gospels, and Sultan Baybars’ Qur’an;
â€¢ Handwritten lyrics by The Beatles;
â€¢ Original scores by Mozart, Schubert, Handel, and Purcell;
â€¢ Charles Dickens’ handwritten draft of “Nicholas Nickleby”;
â€¢ The writings of Jane Austen as a teenager;
â€¢ Letters by Galileo and notebooks from Leonardo da Vinci;
â€¢ 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.
