A PAGE FROM THE GUT EN BERG BIBLE

The year of the tercentenary of the authorized English translation of the Bible will be marked by the sale of the Gutenberg Bible for $50,000, the

largest amount ever paid for a single book in the

history of the world.
This was the first important book printed from
movable type, and dated 1450-55. It is written in
Latin and printed in Gothic characters, the citation
here chosen being from Job 19:23.
