Printing and the Mind of Man

Printing and the Mind of Man offers a survey of the impact of printed books on the development of western civilization. PMM, as it is familiarly known, has become one of the most recognisable acronyms in the jargon of the book trade.

Beginning with the Gutenberg Bible, the first book to be printed with movable metal type, and ending with Winston Churchill’s 1940 “never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few” speech, the folio catalogue offers a hand-list of 424 books, arranged in date order, that have changed human history forever.
