The first item produced at the Venetian printing works of the company established in 1476 by Bernard Maler (Pictor), Peter Löslein and Erhard Ratholt was this Calendarium by Johann Müller of Königsberg (Regiomontanus), which has a title page "As such" (since the first title page appeared in Bula contra los turcos printed by Peter Schöffer in 1463).

For the first time since the invention of the printing press, the title appeared on a separate page at the start of the volume together with an imprint stating the place, date and name of the printers.

It was not until several years later that it became common practice to include a separate title page.

This Calendarium was printed in Latin and Italian in 1476, followed by German in 1478.

The two 1476 editions were the first books in which the date appeared in Arabic numerals. Furthermore, this is the first book in Italy to have woodcut initials stamped next to the text instead of leaving the illuminator a blank space in which to paint the initial.

International social justice movements and the debates that ensued prompted us to start considering the contents of our website from a critical point of view. This has led us to acknowledge that most of the texts in our database are Western-centered. We have asked the authors of our content to be aware of the underlying racial and cultural bias in many scholarly sources, and to try to keep in mind multiple points of view while describing the manuscripts. We also recognize that this is yet a small, first step towards fighting inequality.

If you notice any trace of racist or unjust narratives in our communications, please help us be part of the change by letting us know.
