Discover NLS issue 14 online

The National Library of Scotland's free to read online magazine Discover NLS (issue 14) is now online at www.nls.uk/about/discover-nls/issues/discover-nls-14.pdf.

There are articles on the first race to the North Pole, Scottish theatre history, NLS maps, and a look at The Lyon in Mourning, a compilation of eye witness accounts compiled by the Reverend Robert Forbes following the 1745-46 Jacobite rebellion (though the library does curiously omit the fact that it has actually digitised a later transcription of the document and made it available for free consultation at www.nls.uk/print/transcriptions/index.html).

I didn't know about this magazine's existence until I picked up on it via the NLS's Twitter pages this morning, but it's a good read if you're at a loose end this Christmas Eve!
