40 years ago I received this as a gift from my father.
Johannes Gensfleisch zur Laden zum Gutenberg (Mainz, ca. 1397 - there, 3 February 1468) was a German printer. Gutenberg is the inventor of the typography in Europe. His most famous piece is the Gutenberg bible completes in 1455. The statement that Gutenberg invented typography is misleading. Block printing already existed, making a complete page from one block. Gutenberg’s big achievement was the separate printing of characters. Because of Gutenberg’s invention, correction and editing became easier and cheaper; only small changes in the type were necessary now.
