Getting to Gutenberg….

by

Come and see a facsimile of the famous book that started a revolution!

The Archives is hosting an exhibit featuring a facsimile of the 1454 Gutenberg Bible, given anonymously in honor of Dennis Gallagher, referred to as “Citizen Gallagher’ by the donor. This is the first major book printed using Gutenberg’s invention of movable metal type. Displaying examples of earlier bookmaking, come and see how and why the Gutenberg Bible changed communication and consequently the world!

Archive hours: Tues – Friday, 7:30am – 3:30pm. 4th Floor, Dayton Memorial Library.
