The "Gutenberg" or "42-line" Bible was the first complete book to be printed in movable type and remains a typographical masterpiece. The two columns of print in "textura" type and the initials and rubrics in calligraphy evoke the art of Medieval manuscripts. Of the first printing of 180 copies produced in a collaborative effort between the printer, the calligrapher, Peter Schöffer, and the financier Johannes Fust, some 40 have survived, including 18 complete copies. The only example in a Swiss collection is in Cologny: this rarity, which the Soviets found in a the Czar's library and sold in 1928, was acquired by Martin Bodmer in London.
