"Pentax" in English literature
4 months ago

Check out the Google Ngram of the word "Pentax"  in English books published since 1900.

That would basically be a graph of how many times the word shows up, for each year of publication, in books digitized by Google. I'll leave it to you to work out the details, though I'll add that some of the data are not exact.

Anyway, we see the rise and fall of the name from the late 1950s to a peak in 1975. Then a decline to 1994. And finally a steady rise to 2008, the last year for which they have data.

Fun.
