Summary
Shares the stories behind some of the British Library's rarest and most valuable books, including a giant atlas that requires six people to lift it, Shakespeare folios kept in a bomb-proof room, and a prayer volume carried by a queen to her execution
Summary
A tiny prayer book carried by a queen to her execution. An atlas so huge that it takes six people to lift it. A handmade gospel hidden in a saint’s coffin, and Shakespearean folios so precious they are kept in a bombproof storeroom. From stories of man-eating monsters, brave knights, and wicked witches to tales of lost children, magical creatures, haunted moors, and flying machines, award-winning duo Mick Manning and Brita Granstrm bring to life the extraordinary history of the book through the treasures of one of the greatest libraries in the world: the British Library
