The Bible in Type
Houghton’s current exhibition, “The Bible in Type, from Gutenberg to Rogers”, marks the 400th anniversary of the publishing of the King James Bible by looking at the history of the Bible as a designed book. It offers viewers the rare opportunity to see such landmarks of printing as the Gutenberg Bible (ca. 1455), the Plantin Polyglot Bible (1569) and the Doves Bible (1903), as well as the King James, together in one room. For additional information, see the coverage in HCL News and the Harvard Crimson. The exhibition remains on display in Houghton’s Edison and Newman Room through June 18th.
