If you enjoyed the bus company owner's collection of manuscripts, you might also like to check out the Vatican Library exhibit. Loads of extremely clear images of manuscripts with accompanying information.

Wonderful stuff! I had no idea the Vatican had acquired Henry VIII's love letters to Anne Boleyn - presumably for the purposes of dishing the dirt on him sometime? I wonder when and how they got their hands on them.

I like the ending

'wryttyn with the hand off hym whyche I wolde wer yours'

And we all know what happened to poor Anne after he got his hands on her!
