"The Speculum humanae salvationis, or 'Mirror of Human Salvation,' occupies a unique place in the history of the book. It is the only medieval work that exists in manuscripts, in bookblocks, and in sixteen later incunabula...
The authors' explication of the methods and types used by the Dutch printer of the blockbook editions reflects the intensive research of typographic scholars in this century and is of unique value in the history of printing." (Jacket blurb).
