Incunabula are books, pamphlets, and broadsides that were printed in Europe before the year 1501. Incunabula represent the earliest age of printing, and they printed in two distinct ways. Incunabula were printed either by block book printing style or by typographic book printing. The block book printed incunabula were carved or sculpted into single wooden "pages", and the typographic book printed incunabula were made with pieces of cast metal movable type used on a printing press. The Gutenberg Bible of 1455 and the Nuremberg Chronicle are both examples of incunabula, and both are highly valuable pieces of literature. The Bavarian State Library is believed to have the largest collection of incunabula available.
