Johann Gutenberg was born at the beginning of the 15th century. He trained as a jeweler and lived in Strasbourg, making mirrors and polishing precious stones. In 1448, Gutenberg moved to Mainz, where he borrowed 1,600 guilders to develop a mechanism whose description was a secret.
In the middle of the fifteenth century the first works of the printing house were published. They were calendars, indulgences, and the Latin grammar of Aelius Donatus. In 1454 Gutenberg’s main book, the Bible, was published. Two folios of 1282 pages with a set of forty-two lines. In 1455 Johann Fust demanded repayment of the debt with interest and sued Gutenberg. Peter Schaeffer, Gutenberg’s best printer, testified against the latter in court. The printing house with all the equipment, fonts and Bible set went to Fust.
On 3 February 1468, Johann Gutenberg died in Mainz.
