The Gutenberg Bible

Book of Joshua – The largest fragment in private hands
February 12, 2018

The famous Gutenberg Bible - the crown jewel of printed books - is Europe's first substantial book that was printed using movable metal type. A true work of art, this book's majestic craftsmanship has never been surpassed. The present 13 continuous leaves comprise the complete Book of Joshua from a copy of the first printed edition of the Latin Bible from 1454. They constitute the largest fragment from the Gutenberg Bible in private hands.
