Summary:"Adventure and Art: The First Hundred Years of Printing, was published by the Rutgers University Libraries to accompany an exhibition of books published during the first century of printing, a transitional time of great innovation and accomplishment. Detailed descriptions of Rutgers' rare books and incunabula, some not held by any other North American library, are presented along with photographs of nearly thirty of the collection's most exquisite pieces. Readers who are new to the world of rare books will discover the extraordinary beauty and craftsmanship of these fifteenth- and sixteenth-century pieces, and develop an understanding of the cultural transformations wrought by the emergence and refinement of the art of printing."--BOOK JACKET.
