    The Gutenberg Bible, the first book printed with movable type, was printed at Johann Gutenberg's shop in Mainz, Germany and completed in 1454 or 1455. The University of Texas Ransom Center's Bible was acquired in 1978 and is one of only five complete examples in the United States.

    You may examine portions of it online:
