The World’s First Home Printer

ben-franklin-press

The first home printer was not invented by Hewlett Packard or even by Epson. Instead, it was invented by Benjamin Franklin, who had a printing press installed in his home in Passy so that he could publish bagatelles, satires, pamphlets, and other information while he was stationed in France.

For more information on Benjamin Franklin and his printing press see Franklin and His Press at Passy: An Account of the Books, Pamphlets, and Leaflets Printed There, Including the Long-lost “Bagatelles”.
