New Gutenberg Fragment Found

Earlier this month, an announcement was made that a previously unrecorded fragment of a Gutenberg Bible on vellum were found inside the binding of a breviary at the Bibliothèque municipale de Colmar, in France. The fragment is believed to have come from the nearby Benedictine abbey at Murbach.

Eric White, of the Bridwell Library, reported on Ex-Libris that the fragment includes text from the book of Micah.
