About

Overview

Selection: Dr. Matthew Rusnak (Professor of Italian, Rutgers University)

Venice was one of the major European centres for the production of incunabula after the first press was established there in 1467 by two German exiles. Before the end of the fifteenth century there had been nearly two hundred printing houses set up there (more than for Paris and Rome combined). These fiches reflect the range of Venetian printers and the extraordinary diversity of works they produced.
