Since its founding in 1602, Oxford University's Bodleian Library has amassed an unrivaled collection of remarkable manuscripts, books, maps, and other literary ephemera. If a transatlantic flight isn't in the budget this year, take a leisurely and informative tour through the venerable archives via this beautifully illustrated book. An angst-ridden papyrus letter from an ancient Egyptian schoolboy to his father, the Magna Carta, a decorative Bible belonging to Elizabeth I, Jane Austen's manuscript of The Watsons, a map of Narnia drawn by C. S. Lewis…a fascinating history accompanies a stunning photograph of each of the 100 featured documents. It's breathtaking browsing for anyone interested in the history of the written word! (AG)
