Looking At The Gutenberg Bible

The British Library has a function which allows you to compare their two versions of the Gutenberg Bible. You can choose a book of the Bible and look at the differences between the paper version and the vellum edition. I looked at Jerome's Epistle to Paulinus and saw how much plainer the paper version was; I hadn't realised there would be such a difference. You can also read the introductory information about the Gutenberg Bible and more information about Gutenberg, printing texts, and other relevant topics.
