19th century copy. Fac similé d’une page de la Bible à 36 lignes de Gutenberg, Université de Greifswald Allemagne The 36-line Bible, also known as the "Bamberg Bible" and sometimes called a "Gutenberg Bible", is the second printed edition of the Bible, after the Gutenberg Bible. It is believed to have been printed in Bamberg, Germany, about 1458-60. No printer's name appears in the book, but it is possible that Johannes Gutenberg was responsible. The name refers to the 36 lines of text printed on each page, and distinguishes it from the Gutenberg Bible, or 42-line Bible.
