One of the World's Greatest Collections of Books and Manuscripts

The British Library holds one of the world's greatest collections of books and manuscripts. Many of its treasures, from all parts of the globe, spanning three millennia, are now on display in the Library's John Ritblat Gallery. They include some of the most famous of all documents: the Lindisfarne Gospels, a supreme example of the illuminator's art; the Diamond Sutra, the world's earliest dated printed book; Gutenberg's 42-line Bible, the first western book printed with moveable type; and Magna Carta. One Hundred Treasures from the British Library brings highlights from this outstanding collection to your desk top, featuring Sacred Texts, Western Illuminated Manuscripts, Oriental Illuminated Manuscripts, Printing and Bookbinding, English Literary Manuscripts, Historical Documents, Music Manuscripts, Maps and Views, Newspapers, Stamps and Sound Recordings. Each item is presented with an authoritative short commentary, with options to:

  • zoom in on an image for a closer look
  • save and print images and text for reference or study
  • listen to sound excerpts associated with literary and music manuscripts

With 100 images and many sound clips, including an overview of the Library and its history, this attractive disc will appeal to anyone with an interest in literature, history, art and book arts.
