This very rare, illustrated volume rescues the typewriter from historic neglect. First published in 1923 by a trade journal, it ranges from the 1829 Burt Machine, the first to be issued a U.S. patent, to the decidedly more streamlined models of the early 20th century. Over 280 different varieties include the Yu Ess, Dactygam, Dollar, and Ford as well as better-known products of Hammond, Oliver, Remington, L. C. Smith, and Underwood. Also featured are company histories and period advertisements.
