“The British Library has launched a ground-breaking ‘eBook Treasures’ series which allows iPad users to download entire rare manuscripts. Starting with Leonardo da Vinci’s Codex Arundel (1478-1518) and Geradus Mercator’s Atlas of Europe (1570s) users can now hold rare, unique and original manuscripts in their hands and explore them in depth and spectacular high-definition.
Developed with Armadillo Systems, each eBook allows users to access greater content and in-depth detail about the item such as written, video and audio interpretation. eBooks are viewable full-screen, with award-winning realistic page-turning and can also be viewed offline.
