Mozart's Diary

If Mozart were alive, he'd be celebrating his 250th birthday this year, with all kinds of 18th century-style debauchery: wine, women in frilly dresses who aren't afraid to show some ankle, and classical music played really loud. In commemoration, the British Library has scanned in Wolfie's diary at their website, along with audio clips of many of his works. The site also has scans of Jane Austen manuscripts, 16th century Mercator maps, and Leonardo's sketch books available. Go check it out.
