Digital Gutenberg Bible The British Library has two complete copies of the Gutenberg Bible and a small but important fragment of a third copy.  One copy, printed on paper, was transferred in 1829 to the British Library with the library of King George III (1738-1820). The other copy, printed on vellum, was bequeathed by Thomas Grenville (1755-1846). In March 2000, ten researchers and technical experts from Keio University in Tokyo and from NTT spent two weeks in The British Library creating digital images of the two Bibles and the other related items. The British Library is grateful for the support received from its Japanese partners.
