The University of Texas Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center web site now features a scanned version of their Gutenberg Bible. The Gutenberg Bible, the first book printed with movable type, is one of the greatest treasures in the Ransom Center's collections. It was printed at Johann Gutenberg's shop in Mainz, Germany and completed in 1454 or 1455. The Center's Bible was acquired in 1978 and is one of only five complete examples in the United States.

The Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center, renamed in 1983 for its founder and guiding spirit, Harry Ransom, is one of the world's preeminent institutions for literary and cultural research. The principal rare books and manuscripts library of The University of Texas at Austin, its special collections contain approximately 35 million manuscripts, 1 million books, 5 million photographs, over 100,000 works of art, and an important collection on performing arts. Since its inception in the mid-1950s, the major emphasis of its acquisitions has been on twentieth-century literature and fine arts, principally American, British and French.

The purposes of the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center are:

  • To identify and acquire literary and cultural material, consistent with present strengths, that has value for scholarly research not only by faculty and student at the University of Texas at Austin, but also by researchers from all parts of the world;
  • To support this research by the cataloging of acquisitions and the preparation of collection guides, and by the systematic purchase of bibliographies, books and complementary materials that support the Ransom Center's collections;
  • To establish and maintain policies and services that will facilitate use of the Ransom Center's collections while at the same time protecting their integrity;
  • to disseminate knowledge by lectures, seminars, and exhibitions, and by the publication of catalogs, guides to collections, symposia, journals, and monographs that bear directly on Ransom Center holdings and purposes;
  • To serve the general public by providing access to the Center's literary and cultural holdings through exhibitions and other programs;
  • To safeguard and preserve these treasures for posterity.
In sum, the mission of the Ransom Center is to collect original research materials, to make its collections accessible through high standards of cataloging and conservation, and to encourage their use through exhibitions, seminars, fellowships, lectures, and publications. The central aim of the Center is to continue to acquire and make available books, manuscripts, archives, photographs, and other works of art for research in the humanities.
