Transcript The Story of Nuremberg found in the various cases riv.. v.. vii.. ix., etc.;, and the original editions of Luther's Bible (1523-4) and other writ- ings of his in case xxii. The first German Bibl. printed in Nuremberg (actually the fourth German Bible was published by Frisner and Sensenschmid. 1473 ' v)> case vii. Illustrations, it will be observed, are introduced into the large initial letters. It was Johann Sensenschmid (u the type-cutter") who, with the aid of Heinrich Keffer of Mainz, a pupil of Gutenberg, first introduced the art of printing into the town (Franciscus de Retza, Comestorium vitiorium, 1470, case vii.). Then in 1471 Johann Muller. or ELegiomoDtanujj as lie celled himself, came with the object of establishing a private printing press, in order to issue his own works here. He printed his German and Latin Calendar from blocks, and various mathematical works from moveable types. But Anton Koherger1 (1473- 1513) was the greatest printer of Nuremberg. To ti with which he produced woodcut illustrations for nil works, the Schatxbehalter and the Hartmann Schedels PVeltchoml (cases xiii., xiv.), the growth of the Nuremberg school of engraving is due. Another famous Nuremberg printer closely connected in business with Koherger- was Friedrich Crentsner, who printed the first German edition of " Marcho Polo, das puch von mangerley wunder der landt rod lewt " in 1477 (case xii. >.
