Discover NLS issue 14 online

The National Library of Scotland's free to read online magazine Discover NLS (issue 14) is now online at

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

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!
