The writers and thinkers of John Murray's publishing firm shaped the modern world through their works of literature, science, exploration and politics.
This exhibition draws on material from the John Murray Archive. It uses state-of-the-art exhibition technology to bring to life the work and lives of a changing selection of the publisher's most influential figures.
Those featured in the first line-up include Lord Byron, Charles Darwin and David Livingstone. Learn how they contributed to one of the greatest periods of human progress and creativity. See if you could publish your own international bestseller.
