comment What were the reasons for the Renaissance / scientific revolution in Europe?
@JimThio: But it was much slower: "European printing presses of around 1600 were capable of producing 3,600 impressions per workday. By comparison, movable type printing in the Far East, which did not know presses and was solely done by manually rubbing the back of the paper to the page, did not exceed an output of forty pages per day."
