This is the indispensable introduction to the tangled and mythic history of the most important book ever printed. As per the publisher's statement, this book "provides, for the first time, an English-language summary of Gutenberg scholarship from the fifteenth century through the mid-1980s. Directed to both the specialist and the general reader, it takes as its primary questions 'What do we know about Gutenberg, and when and how did we know it?'"
With an insightful preface by Paul Needham.
