Product information "Korean Printing: From Its Origins to 1910"
Korean printing still holds some surprises. We thought we knew everything of its history. However, recent research in France and Korea undertaken by Doctor Park Byeng-Sen contradicts and changes our historical referencies and assets. This book reveals us that Korea is the fatherland of metalic mobile type printing invention. Indeed, the first work in the world being printed with metalic mobile types would not be done by Gutenberg, but by Korean printers who had controlled this technique several years before. This discovery will have certainly an important impact on Korea's position in the point of historical and cultural view, making this peninsula a new rich pole of information on the progress and technical knowledge of the South-east Asian population from Antiquity to the Modern Period.
