“This Tuesday,Â The Polonsy Foundation Digitization Project, which aims to digitize the collectionsÂ ofÂ Oxfordâ€™s Bodleian LibrariesÂ and theÂ Vaticanâ€™s Biblioteca Apostolica, made aÂ virtual version of the Gutenberg BibleÂ available online.”
Fewer than fifty copies of the Gutenberg Bibles are known to exist in the world, and you can visit the very high-resolution scans of Oxford Bodleian Library’s copy here.
TheÂ Polonsky Foundation Digital Project is a collaboration between The Bodleian Libraries and the Vatican Library and is definitely one of the world’s most interesting digitization projects.
And, for those of us in California: there’s also The Huntington Library’s excellent rare books collection, with its Gutenberg Bible on permanent display. Worth a visit. (And check out the cactus garden, too).
