Printing press

Before the Internet's ability to spread information, the printing press helped information travel around the globe. 
Developed around 1440 in Mainz, Germany, Johannes Gutenberg’s machine improved on already existing presses.
By 1500 Gutenberg presses were operating throughout Western Europe with a production of 20 million copies.
By 1600, they had created over 200 million new books.
