Very early typewriter, with an illustration...
Item # 655452
December 6, 1856
SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN, New York, Dec. 6, 1856 An inside page has a fascinating article and illustration of: "Cooper's Hand Printing Machine" with a descriptive article headed: "Hand Printing Machine". The "Virtual Antique Typewriter Museum" notes that this is a unique piece; only one example of this machine is known to exist.
This may well be the earliest print of a typewriter to appear in any publication, and as such would be a cornerstone piece for any typewriter collection.
Eight pages, very nice, clean condition.
