The Invention of Printing – Die Erfindung der Buchdruckerkunst (Heinrich Meisner; Johannes Luther, 1900)

This work explores the first decades of printing in the 15th century and is dedicated to the 500th birthday of Johannes Gutenberg. While the book is in German language, on 116 pages you will find many impressive 115 illustrations, including two spreads.

The authors worked at the Royal Library in Berlin. Dr. Heinrich Meisner dedicated many decades of his life to that work, and to the research of book history.
