Abstract

The establishment and operation of printing houses in the revolutionary Greek area began just a few months after the start of the struggle. As these were – almost entirely – short-lived ventures, the printing houses become known and established historically from the places where they operate: Kalamata, Corinth, Hydra, Messolongi, Athens, Psara, Nafplio, Aegina. The printing presses from 1821 to 1827 served the purposes of the Revolution in various ways, despite the difficulties in terms of both technical equipment and human resources. Forty-four small or more or less books, seven newspapers and at least 220 monographs were produced by these printing houses.
