Turning the Pages Gallery allows you to "turn" the pages of virtual books from the British Library. Featured are illuminated manuscripts from the early Renaissance, atlases, botanical illustrations, religious texts, including works by Handel, Leonardo da Vinci, Jane Austen, and John J. Audubon. You can listen to audio description, magnify images and other page content.

The original software fore "Turning the Pages" uses Adobe Shockwave; for the British Library's new improved version with even more titles, check out this link.
