Default Bench Press

Does anybody know when the bench press first entered in to documented history and/or was first seen to be performed?

I've read accounts that there was an incline style press done whereby people would stand and lean against a board set in to the wall (or against the wall) at a certain angle which would have been considered to be the very first incline bench press, I guess; but can't find anything about the origins of the completely supine bench press.
