About

Overview

Selection: Dr. Margaret Smith (Department of Typography, Reading University)

Florence was a relatively small site for the production of incunabula, with probably fewer than thirty printers before 1501. These fiches assemble the works of these printers and particularly reflect their shared interest in a range of classical and humanist writings as well as the controversial writings of Girolamo Savanorola.
