Wow this is really bizarre. They are saying this bible is from 1454 yet it looks strangely modern...

Gutenberg Bible
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gutenberg_Bible

Written in Latin, the Gutenberg Bible is an edition of the Vulgate, printed by Johannes Gutenberg, in Mainz, Germany, in the 1450s. Forty-eight copies, or substantial portions of copies, survive, and they are considered to be one of the most valuable books in the world, even though a complete copy has not been sold since 1978.
