Priceless... and Available for Free Online

National libraries and the U.N. education agency put some of humanity's earliest written works online Tuesday, from ancient Chinese oracle bones to the first European map of the New World.

The website leads readers through a trove of rare finds from more than a dozen countries.

Among them: the only known copy of the first book published in the Philippines, in Spanish and Tagalog.

Then there's the entry on Aguinaldo's Navy (accompanied by a historical video) which, quite simply, is priceless.

Check it out!
