There is some scholarly debate over the true origins of printing with moveable type. It is most widely thought, of course, that Johannes Gutenberg (Germany, ca. 1398-1468) invented the process that introduced us to modern book printing. Rumors have existed, however, that his investor and partner, Johann Fust, brought the invention to Gutenberg from Laurens Janszoon Coster (ca. 1370-ca. 1440) after having apprenticed him in the 1430s. It is thought that he may have brought some of his equipment from Haarlem, The Netherlands.
While the truth of its origins may never be known to us for certain, I do find it curious that I found this wood type amidst the treasures of an old man in Haarlem, The Netherlands.
