“Incunabula,” Latin for “swaddling clothes” or “cradle,”
refers to “the earliest stages or first traces in the development of anything.” Commonly used to refer to the first printed books, pamphlets, or broadsides produced before the year 1501 in Europe. In other words, the first books as we know them.
