John of Placenta
Can anyone tell me anything about John of Placenta, mentioned in C.R. Gregory, Canon and Text of the New Testament (T & T Clark, 1907), p. 438, as having been the first person to print part of the Greek NT (The Magnificat and Benedictus; 20 September 1481, Milan). Considering the nature of the step he made it is rather surpring that Google appears to know nothing of the man. Does he go under another name? Anyone have any piccies of the edition?
