    Granted by King John as a practical solution to a political crisis in 1215, Magna Carta has become a globally important document, as a resonant symbol of liberty and the rule of law. This volume accompanied the British Library's 2015 exhibition marking the 800th anniversary - the largest ever devoted to Magna Carta. Two original copies of the charter are featured alongside a host of documents and artefacts illustrating its legacy, from the 1534 English translation to modern political cartoons.
