White: Editio Princeps. A History of the Gutenberg Bible

Description

Editio princeps: A History of the Gutenberg Bible is the first book to tell the whole story of Europe’s first printed edition, describing the history of its creation at Mainz circa 1455 up until its rise to worldwide fame during the centuries thereafter. This comprehensive study examines the forty-nine surviving Gutenberg Bibles as well as fragments of at least fourteen others in the chronological order in which they came to light. The book reconstructs the history of each copy in unprecedented depth, from its earliest known context through every change of ownership up to the present day - bringing the ‘biographies’ of all the Gutenberg Bibles together for the first time.
