THE PRINTING MACHINE
PRINT "Impressio librorum. Potest vt vna vox garments aure plurima: Linunt ita vna scripta mille paginas". Interior of a printing house, overview with the various stages of the printing of books, from the composition with movable type invented by Gutenberg to the collection of the pages that came out of the press for binding. Engraving by Joannes Galle (1600–1676) from a drawing of a series by Joannes Stradanus (1523 - 1605) on the most significant inventions; through the press, a writing covers a thousand pages, just as a voice is heard by many ears. Antwerp, 16th century.
