The Gutenberg Bible will be on display at the National Library of Scotland for one day only, on Thursday 22 November.
One of the world's most treasured books, it was produced in Germany in the 1450s by Johannes Gutenberg.
This was the first major book to be printed in Europe using moveable type. It caused a sensation when it first appeared at the Franklin Bookfair in 1455, and has gained in significance since then.
A selection of other books printed before 1501 — known as 'incunables' — will also be on show alongside the Library's copy of the Gutenberg Bible.
The free display runs from 10.00-18.00 in the Library's George IV Bridge building.
