How much for the Magna Carta?

US$3.99 isn’t exactly a lot for your very own permanent curator to the British Library. Okay, so it's US$5.99 if you want an HD version for your iPad. That’s right, it’s an app. The Treasures app for Apple and Adroid features more than 100 works from the library’s collections — including the Gutenberg Bible, original scores by Mozart, Schubert, Handel and Purcell, Jane Austen’s teenage writings, Da Vinci’s notebooks, Nelson’s battle plan for the Battle of Trafalgar, handwritten lyrics by The Beatles, Galileo’s letters, the original version of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland… we could go on and on. This is, after all, the world’s largest library. There are 250 high-definition images of rare artifacts and more than 40 videos that provide expert commentary. Available on iTunes or the Android Marketplace.
