“Until the publication of this very rare, superbly illustrated volume, there were few books devoted to the early history of the typewriter. This book filled the gap. First published in the early 1920s by the trade journal Typewriter Topics, it constitutes a wonderful illustrated history of the mechanical marvel designed to supersede handwriting, a machine that ultimately played a transformative role in modern business.

From the 1829 Burt Machine, the first typewriter issued a U.S. patent, to the decidedly more streamlined models of 1923, every typewriter known to that time appears here. Over 300 different varieties range from such obscure models as the Yu Ess, Dactygam, Dollar, and Ford to the products of such major typewriter pioneers as Hammond, Oliver, Remington, L.C. Smith and Underwood. Also featured are company histories and period advertisements.

Enhanced with a new Introduction by Victor M. Linoff, this inexpensive republication will prove invaluable to collectors and historians. It will also delight nostalgia buffs and anyone even casually interested in the evolution of the remarkable machine that changed the face of written communication.

Unabridged Dover (2000) republication of the Typewriter: History & Encyclopedia, originally published by Typewriter Topics, New York, 1924, New Introduction by Victor M. Linoff.”
