octavo, 239 pp. With translations of the texts into English, based with authority on the compilation by Dr. Karl Schorbach. From McMurtrie's introduction, ".it became evident to me that the original documents relating to Johann Gutenberg constituted the keystone in the arch of source materials on the invention of printing." Twenty-seven legal documents relating to Gutenberg have been translated from the original Latin and German. "With the benefit of such advice [from the translators], I have endeavored to write a smooth and intelligible English text, which will also retain the archaic flavor of the original documents." With two Appendices: A Note on the Death of Johann Gutenberg and Two Spurious Documents Relating to Gutenberg. Top two corners very lightly bumped, else a fine, clean copy.
