New Titles Down The Centuries


anecdotal stories
When Gutenberg invented the remarkable printing press, book prices dropped 80% overnight, and learning to read became a fad.

About 520,000 titles were published in the 16th century, 1.25 million in the 17th, two million in the 18th, and eight million in the 19th. At the close of the 20th century, we see 500,000 new titles each year.

“But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end . . . and knowledge shall increase.” – Daniel 12:4
