In looking for further details about the evolution of the printer's point, I found this article

http://www.brainpickings.org/index.php/2013/09/27/shady-characters-irony/

which I do not believe was cited in a thread here about a new punctuation mark to indicate irony. Which is a pity, as it supplies important historical data, including an 1899 proposal for such a mark.
