ABOUT THE GUTENBERG BIBLE

 

The Morgan Library & Museum in New York is the only library in the world that has three copies, out of 49 copies known to presently exist, that were printed in 1455 by Johannes Gutenberg. 

It is believed that altogether 160-180 copies were originally printed by Gutenberg.

 

Only one of the three copies in the Morgan Library is a complete original Gutenberg volume.  There are only five complete original Gutenberg printed editions (volumes) in the U.S. (Morgan Library NY, LO Congress, DC, Yale Beinecke Library, Harvard Widener Library, and Universityof Texas Austin).

 

In 1968 Brussel & Brussel Publishers in NY, reproduced a limited facsimile edition of a reduced size in 3 volumes in black and white.  They used the complete Gutenberg Bible that is owned by the Morgan Library. 

Two volumes are of the Hebrew Bible and the third volume is the New Testament. The New Testament volume has illustrations in color.  The three volumes come in a decorated slipcase.
