A male figure with reddish hair and a full beard is standing in front of a table with a miniature printing press and several documents. He is wearing a gold-embroidered patrician’s gown while holding a quill feather in his hand. A shelf holding a number of books is visible in the background. The caption under the image reads: “Aeltestes Bild Gutenbergs als Erfinder der Buchdruckerkunst” – “The Oldest image of Gutenberg as the Inventor of the Art of Printing”.
