Richard Bankes published the 1st book printed in England to any
pretensions to be called a herbal. An anonymous quarto volume dated
1525, the book generally known as Bankes Herbal is thought to
be an abridgment of some medieval English manuscripts on herbs.
Its popularity was such that many editions subsequently appeared
from different presses, published under a variety of titles.
Johann Schonsperger - 1st extant book is a German Regimen
sanitatis, printed on 1 Sept 1481 - he continued printing
into the 16th c. (1520) Schonsperger's earliest types have
immistakably been influenced by Johann Baemler in whose
office Schonsperger may have been trained as a printer.

Type 98 Latin text typ in use in
1497. Of the same class as Sorg 94 but
differing in many forms . Tail of h level with line.
The C of 105 is found with this type in 1A.
