Abstract
Before beginning this journey through how lithography and subsequently photolithography came into existence, and how the technology has evolved ever since, it is necessary to review the cultural, scientific, and technological framework out of which these planographic printing techniques emerged. A great deal has already been written about the artistic and sociological impacts of the fine art lithographers and photographers of the 19th and 20th centuries, which will not be reviewed here. The introduction of lithography at the end of the 18th century and the simultaneous introduction of photolithography and photography in the 3rd decade of the 19th century greatly influenced every facet of human endeavor, particularly in scientific and technological pursuits.
