Mazarin Bible

the first complete book extant in the West and the earliest printed from movable type, so called after its printer, Johannes Gutenberg (q.v.), who completed it about 1455 working at Mainz, Ger. The three-volume work, in Latin text, was printed in 42-line columns and, in its later stages of production, was worked on by six compositors simultaneously. It is sometimes referred to as the Mazarin Bible because the first copy described by bibliographers was located in the Paris library of Cardinal Mazarin
