Abstract

What was the relationship between the printing technology available to early printers in Cologne and the printing practices? I can demonstrate that the regular conceptions of setting method and printing practice, printing page-by-page with a one-pull press and setting text seriatim, are contradicted after the evaluation of material evidence of, so far, at least one Cologne: one of the first in-folio format editions in Cologne, printed by the first printer of the city, Ulrich Zell.
