Incunabula are books, pamphlets, and other written materials that were printed in the earliest years of the printing press, before the year 1501. These materials are considered to be extremely valuable and rare because they are some of the earliest surviving examples of printed works. Many incunabula are written in Latin and deal with a wide range of subjects, including literature, philosophy, religion, science, and more. They are often highly sought after by collectors and libraries due to their historical importance and rarity. Some famous examples of incunabula include the Gutenberg Bible and the Nuremberg Chronicle.
Post-incunabula are books and other written materials that were printed after the year 1501. This period is sometimes referred to as the “early modern” period in the history of printing. It marks the transition from the earliest years of printing to a more mature and widespread industry. During this time, printing presses became more widely available and the technology improved, leading to the production of a greater number and variety of printed materials. Many of the books and other written works produced during this time are considered to be important historical and cultural documents, and they are often collected and studied by scholars and researchers.
