This is a slim little book, and its content is perhaps even less than the size might cause you to think. It isn't a book about the Mainz Vulgate/Gutenberg Bible in general. It is almost entirely about one particular book -- and it doesn't even give the full history of that particular book. Just a few highlights. The main content of the book could have -- and probably should have -- been published as an eight page pamphlet.

What value the book has derives almost entirely from the appendix, "LOCATION OF KNOWN COPIES." This gives substantial details about the various remaining Gutenbergs -- location, some history, and some information about the condition of the copy. For this purpose, it is a handy reference. Although this role, too, could have been filled by a pamphlet. ( )

FOREWORD

What would we do if there was nothing to read?
Way back toward the end of the 18th Century, an Englishman named Sir George Shuckburgh managed to acquire, which is an expensive word for "buy," a magnificent copy of the world's most famous book, the Gutenberg Bible.
