"Venice in the fifteenth century is the mercantile and cultural capital of the world. There, the first printers, publishing houses and bookstores open for business. Among the innovators who are driving these new cultural enterprises, one remarkable visionary, Aldus Manutius, stands head and shoulders above the rest. He is credited with inventing the figure of the modern publisher. Manutius will publish the first printed editions of the Talmud, the Koran, the works of Erasmus of Rotterdam and classics of the Greek and Latin poetry and theater, bringing about a true revolution and the birth of the world", viewed October 4, 2013.
