What Does As Early As Mean

Note:

This explains what the phrase As Early As means by going through a very simple example.

 

Answer:
Let's consider one example from a Wiki page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_automobile
The history of the automobile typically begins as early as 1769.

From the above example, you can see that the phrase As Early As implies the meaning of "surprising early". Without this, we might have thought the invention of automobiles or cars had not been that long ago. Roughly, we could have imagined it started in the 19th century, not the 18th century. However, the fact is that it started much longer than that.
