Magic lamp

Based on the popular British Library exhibition and a new online exhibition from Google Arts and Culture.  It includes the early manuscripts and sketches of author J.K. Rowling and is of particular interest to historians of images and texts on artefacts relating to the history of magic, divination and herbology. See the spectacular Ripley scroll, a 6-metre long illustrated manuscript which describes how to make a philosophers stone.
