Incunabula: The Early Printed Books

Johannes Gutenberg’s invention of the printing press changed the world. Today book collectors also view the invention of the printing press as a major cultural turning point – books made before and after this point are vastly different and so booksellers, collectors and historians dub books printed in this time of transition ‘Incunabula.’

Travel back more than 500 years and see the books that counted before the start of the 16th century.
