Thanks for dropping in!
Please have a look at the typewriters in my collection and you will
see how beautiful and unusual the world's first typewriters are.|
My collection is really just the tip of the iceberg, as
literally hundreds of distinct collectible typewriters were
manufactured during the 1880s and 1890s. There are so many more
interesting models to add to my collection that my search will never
end. For a collector, though, this is tantalizingly good news!
I also love to restore these typewriters. I have spent hundreds
of hours working on a single one, dismantling every part to remove
dirt, old oil and rust. It takes a lot of patience, but the
pleasures of exploring the mechanisms of a hundred-year old
typewriter, and the end result -- a beautiful, smoothly operating
machine -- is well worth it.
