Haebler - More frequently than is the case in other Italian towns in which there were printing offices, the Roman printers gave the addresses of their presses + a number of Roman printing offices are known only by their addresses. This is the case c the books coming from 'Apud Sanctum Marcum', the name of the printer is never given. Vitus Puecher was the leading manager of the printing office. His Roman Type is dependent on Sweynheym + Pannartz's. Like that type it has (differing in this from most of the other romans) an M c straight shanks _ also the A with teh bars on one side only; in face as well as body the type is slightly smaller. -- already in 1460 Fust + Schoeffer carried over into printing the practice in Roman manuscript law books of surrounding the text with commentary. They + all the later German (as well as many Italian) printers used gothic type -- large for the text + small for commentary. Therefore the use by Vitus Puecher in this work of both gothic + roman type is quite unusual.
