Albertus Street Signage in Exhibition.jpg


The first printing of the print edition had one error, fixed in version 1.1.0 of the ebook and in the second printing.

page 15

Albertus was inspired from bronze inscriptions that Wolpe had made, but those inscriptions weren’t on a bell. (The bell, from the same era, had Fraktur (Gothic) style type.)
