John Fust, or Faust

. A goldsmith of Mentz, who is said by some to have been the inventor of printing by means of movable metal types. Others, however, are of opinion that he only aisisted Gutenberg and his son-in-law, Schoeffer, in bringing the discovery to perfection. He was living at Paris in 1466, and is supposed to have died soon afterwards.

Taken from Gesta Typographica by Chas. Jacobi, 1897, page 21.
