Printed in Mainz in 1455 by Johann Gutenberg and associates, The Gutenberg Bible was the first major work printed in Europe from movable type. More than five hundred years after its creation, fewer than fifty copies of the original now survive. Many copies, including The British Library's lavish example, incorporated painted decoration in order to evoke the feel of a more traditional illuminated manuscript. Pages from the library's edition are reproduced in full color in this volume, and Martin Davies's text discusses how The Gutenberg Bible was created and published, as well as the role it played in the early spread of printing in Europe.

Readers will learn how the Bible that Johannes Gutenberg began work on in 1450 resulted in a transformation in the distribution of knowledge and sparked incredible growth in literacy. They’ll find out how Gutenberg’s printing press worked, how books had to be copied out by hand before its invention, and what already extant tools helped inspire Gutenberg. The Gutenberg Bible’s layout and decoration are discussed, while images of the pages from the book itself impress upon readers the importance of consulting primary sources.

The Book That Changed the World A complete reprint of the revolutionary Gutenberg Bible The printing press has been called the greatest invention of the second millennium. Published in Mainz around 1454, the Gutenberg Bible was the first major Western publication to be printed with movable metal type, ushering in a whole new age of knowledge distribution through mass-produced books. Before Gutenberg, woodcut printing and early forms of movable type printing had been mastered in Asia, but had yet to reach Europe. Instead, each book had to be copied by hand in a long, labor-intensive process. Not only did Gutenberg's innovation of mechanical movable type significantly speed up production without sacrificing quality, it irreversibly enriched public knowledge, pioneering mass communication and allowing people to access ideas and participate in discussions like never before. When it comes to radical revolutions in media, the Gutenberg Bible is up there with the Internet. This fascimile edition derives from one of the very few surviving complete vellum Latin originals worldwide; the Göttingen Library edition, one of the most valuable books in the world, listed in the UNESCO Memory of the World program. All 1,282 pages of this artistic and technological masterwork are included, along with a companion book written by Stephan Füssel, Gutenberg-Chair at Mainz University, introducing Gutenberg, his transformative influence, and two important documents of the time: the Göttingen Model Book which was used to illuminate the Göttingen Library edition and the only surviving notary document by Ulrich Helmasperger, which records the history of this unique invention and its product, the Gutenberg Bible.
