Dec 7, 10:30 am | Virtual Conversations with the Library: The Gutenberg Bible: John Ringling’s Gift from Germany | $5 / Free for Members Buy Tickets

The Gutenberg Bible was the first major book printed in Europe using movable metal type and was considered to be a masterpiece of craftsmanship and innovation. In 1931 John Ringling received the gift of a handsomely-bound, 1913 facsimile of the Gutenberg Bible from Otto H. F. Vollbehr, a wealthy German industrialist and collector of fifteenth-century incunabula. This program, presented by Elisa Hansen, Head of Library Services, will address the history of the Gutenberg Bible, as well as the significance of Ringling’s facsimile.
