Raynor Memorial Libraries invites the Marquette community to experience the “Incunables: Discovering the Origins of the Printed Book,” exhibit, located on Raynor Library’s third floor.
The exhibit explores the origins and impact of book publishing in Europe through a showcase of incunables from its own rare books collection, which now includes 28 examples of these exceedingly rare books:
- 1473 edition of St. Augustine’s City of God published in Germany by the immediate successors to Johannes Gutenberg (using Gutenberg’s type)
- Bible printed in 1482
The companion digital exhibit is available online.
