NotesThe date of rubrication 1461 is found on a single leaf, Paris BN (DeR(M) 23,13), formerly the last leaf of the Wolfenbüttel HAB copy. For arguments favouring Gutenberg as printer see G.D. Painter, in D.E. Rhodes (ed.), Essays in honour of Victor Scholderer (Mainz, 1970) pp.292-322. Polain assigns to Mainz, before 1460
Some copies have (fragments of) a printed rubrication guide in six leaves: Bamberg SB, Cambridge UL, Halle ULB, München BSB, Paris BN (cf. B. Pfeil, Ein weiteres Fragment des 'Registrum rubricarum' der 36zeiligen Bibel - http://www.db-thueringen.de/servlets/DerivateServlet/Derivate-14371/fragment_registrum.pdf)
Eric White argues for Pfister as the printer of the Bible and provides information about several copies, cf. E.M. White, New Provenances for Four Copies of the 36-Line Bible, in: The Book Collector 62:3 (2013), pp.403–434
