Note: The dates record only the first German involvement. In many cases locals preceded them, sometimes employing German assistants. Some Germans (e.g. Achates and Wurster) set up more than one works. For details, see the source: Ferdinand Geldner, Die Deutschen Inkunabeldrucker, Vol. 2, Stuttgart, 1970.
