Abstract

The machine printing and rapid cultural development in Europe begins with the discovery of metal lettering at
the end of the 15th century. This printing technique has been named the letterpress printing and is one of the
greatest inventions of mankind. The development of printing was one of the main indicators of the development of individual countries. We believe that today in the world and in Europe the Croatian development of that age is significantly neglected. This paper presents European development and development in Croatia. This paper will contribute to a more accurate evaluation of Croatian printing and cultural level of that time by displaying Croatian achievements of that era, the printing staff, printed works and printing houses, throughout European and Croatian development of printing.
