The Printing Press-An Essay

Introduction: The ‘printing press’ refers to a machine for printing books, magazines, leaflets, banners, pictures etc. from types or metal plates. The art of printing was first invented in China. The types were made of wood. The modern printing press was invented by Johannes Gutenberg of Germany in 1454. With this invention, a new revolution began in the progress of human civilization.

Description:  In England, the printing press was founded in 1491 by William Caxton. In India, Charles Wilkins established the first printing press. Now there are printing presses all over the world. Now the art of printing has been greatly improved. Nowadays we require very little labour. Printing has been made cheaper and easier with the help of electricity.

Printing art is a great blessing to mankind. Earlier books were written by hand. Therefore the number of books was very small and only a few people could buy books. Furthermore, the manuscripts were sold at high prices and only wealthy people could buy them. We gain knowledge by reading books but knowledge and education were limited to only to few people as books were not available to everyone. Then sometimes, it was difficult to read books written by hand. Printing has overcome all these disadvantages.

The art of printing has helped in the progress of civilization. Thoughts of men are recorded in books. From books, we can know the thoughts, discoveries and inventions of great men. The printing press has spread education among people on a large scale. Books disseminate knowledge irrespective of time and space. Every new idea soon spreads to the whole world through books. A large number of copies can be made in a few hours by means of a printing press. Now everyone can buy books at cheap prices. Ideas of the greatest men of all countries and all ages are readily available to all.

Due to the printing press, we now have a lot of newspapers and magazines. They give us news, knowledge and information of all kinds. They increase our knowledge. Sitting in one corner of the world, we get information about the whole world through newspapers and magazines. This was not possible before the invention of the printing press.

Conclusion: During the late twentieth-century printing technology developed beyond imagination and various types of the digital printing press have made their existence in the market. We should take the advantage of such a printing press and try our best to print more and more books to contribute to the easy dissemination of knowledge. 0 0 0
