The Gutenberg Revolution: How Printing Changed The Course Of History
The invention of Johann Gutenberg - printing by movable type - was a discovery waiting to happen in the fifteenth century. His story is full of paradox: his ambition was to reunite all Christendom, but his invention shattered it; he aimed to make a fortune, but was cruelly denied the fruits of his life's work. This book covers his story.
