Gutenberg’s Bible

by Jason Carter

Part of a Series: Let’s Find Out! Primary Sources.

First Release:

November 2017

ISBN: 9781508104032

Few books have had as much of an impact on history as the Gutenberg Bible. 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.
