"America" First?

Casa de la Primera Imprenta de América at the corner of Moneda and Licenciado Primo Verdad streets in Mexico City was the home of the first printing press/print shop in what is now North America. The printer Juan Pablos oversaw the printing of at least 35 books at this print shop between 1539, the date of the first book printed in the Americas, and his death in 1560. The press arrived from Spain in 1539, almost 100 years before the first press at Harvard.
