I ran "founded on the printed word" on Google Scholar, where the search
turned up "The Common Ground of McLuhan and Frye" (by Francesco Guardiani)
at
projects.chass.utoronto.ca/mcluhan-studies/v1_iss1/1_1art12.htm
<http://projects.chass.utoronto.ca/mcluhan-studies/v1_iss1/1_1art12.htm>

Author says that in "Canada: The Borderline Case," a McLuhan essay in _The
Canadian Imagination: Dimensions of a Literary Culture_ (David Staines,
editor),  Cambridge, MA: Harvard UP, 1977, this is on page 242:

"American politics were the first to be founded on the printed word."

all best,

Pat
