Facts about the Book

The Harry Ransom Center is a special collections library. Unlike a school or public library where materials may be checked out, all materials in the collections must be viewed in the Center's Reading Room. The Gutenberg Bible, however, may only be viewed in its display case, which is why the Ransom Center has made every page available digitally on its website, and on a CD-ROM edition of the book to commemorate the 550th anniversary of the printing of the Gutenberg Bible.
