Relying on documents previously unavailable to both Western andChinese researchers, this history demonstrates how Westerntechnology and evolving traditional values resulted in the birth of aunique form of print capitalism that would have a far-reaching andirreversible influence on Chinese culture. In the mid-1910s, whathistorians call the "Golden Age of Chinese Capitalism" began,accompanied by a technological transformation that included the drasticexpansion of China’s "Gutenberg revolution." Thisis a vital reevaluation of Chinese modernity that refutes viewsthat China's technological development was slowed by culture orthat Chinese modernity was mere cultural continuity.

Page v - When You are Old" When you are old and grey and full of sleep, And nodding by the fire, take down this book, And slowly read, and dream of the soft look Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep; How many loved your moments of glad grace, And loved your beauty with love false or true, But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you, And loved the sorrows of your changing face...
Page 9 - The tool or working-machine is that part of the machinery with which the industrial revolution of the 18th century started. And to this day it constantly serves as such a starting point, whenever a handicraft, or a manufacture, is turned into an industry carried on by machinery.
