The mystery of the Catholicon: did Gutenberg invent stereotyping?

An online talk by Paul W. Nash for the Oxford Bibliographical Society

The first printed edition of the Catholicon is dated ‘1460’, but was printed in three impressions, apparently over the course of more than a decade. How was this possible? Paul W. Nash will examine the proposed solutions to this mystery and describe his own experiments and conclusions.

Thursday 4 March 2021 at 5:15 p.m. (GMT)

The talk will be given virtually by Zoom.
