Filippio de Lavagna [inserted] an educated + prosperous citizen of Milan [end inserted - in 1470 established a printing house in Milan with Antonio Zarotto of Parma - the books published by Lavagna. Lavagne's contribution to the enterprise was that of owners of the plant, editor & publisher. Zarotto organized his own company in 1472. He continued to print in Milan until 1514, the date of his death. Christopher Valdarfer, a master printer at Venice in 1471 was indiced by Lavagne to transfer his plant to Milan in 1472, for Lavagne proposed with other booksellers of Milan to provide Valdarfer [inserted] 1st issue in print of the Decameron [end inserted] with work enough in 1473 to keep a presser busy.

[inserted] from Proctor [end inserted] It is a question how far Lavagnia was a printer. In 1498, certainly he had books printed for him by Pachet & Scinzenzeler - at a later period he was certainly more publisher than printer & possibly he had no press at that time. - Pacificus Typo 6 2011 = 89mm.

Golden Legend - consisted mainly of lies of the saints including the Hebrew patriarch & apostles, based largely on the relevant Biblical text. (177 (182) Chapters)

#71 Book Club of California -> 1949 Golden Legend was before 1535-7 the principal somer of Biblical literature for the average Englishman. In fact it was read in the churches. So in a sense, it can be said that these early editions of the Golden Legend represent the 1st printing of the English Bible.
