"Anton Koberger was the German goldsmith, printer and publisher who printed and published the Nuremberg Chronicle, a landmark of incunabula, and was a successful bookseller of works from other printers. He established in 1470 the first printing house in Nuremberg", from which sprang a number of editions of the Biblia Latina, first appearing in 1475, with this, reputedly, the last with the Koberger name.
