History Of the Gutenberg Bible

The Gutenberg Bibles are the first books to be printed using a movable media type. The introduction of the Gutenberg Bible represents the transition from hand-written books and documents, to mass production of books and manuscripts, and to the transition from Middle Ages to the Modern World.

Completed in Mainz, Germany in 1455 by Johann Gutenberg, the Bible is made using Noble Gothic type. Printed in Latin with double columns on each page and 42 lines per page. The capital letters and headings are written by hand in color.

The Bible

This Particular Gutenberg Bible is written in Latin, in three volumes, and dates back to the early 16th century. Purchased by the Library of Congress in 1930 from the Benedictine Order located at The Abby of Saint Blasius in the Black Forest of Germany.
