Typewriter Books

I love typewriters AND I love books. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/love.png

I figured I'd start out by posting the two typewriter books I own and go from there.
PLEASE post books you own OR books on your wish list!

Century of the Typewriter by Wilfred A. Beeching c.1974

Re: Typewriter Books

One I've been looking out for is 'Typewriters: an illustrated history'.

Re: Typewriter Books

Here's another gem I acquired this week:
20th Century Typewriting by Lessenberry, Crawford, & Erickson, c. 1967
If you see anything you like (SEE Table of Contents), let me know and I'll be happy to scan it.

Re: Typewriter Books

In all my second-hand book browsing, I don't think I've ever seen a book about typewriters / -ing.  I wonder if dealers instinctively throw them away as being of no interest to anyone any more? 

I'd like to read the reminisences of someone who worked in a typing pool all his/her (far more likely her) life - perhaps there is no such thing.


Sincerely,
beak.

Re: Typewriter Books

I find many of them to be ex-library books. They are usually stamped with "withdrawn" or "discarded."

Re: Typewriter Books

I have a Smith Corona typing course with the 45 records still in the back of the box. It's in damn near perfect condition. I will try to get some pictures of it. Been thinking about selling it but I don't know if I want to yet. I got rid of ALL my typers except the Royal Apollo 10 and a smith Corona Clipper. I think I am getting rid of the Clipper though and just going to stick with the Apollo until I find another glass keyed one. I'm sort of looking for the right typer, one that sets me on fire. I had a Type O but someone offered me too much for it so I just had to sell it. Now I am regretting it.


Before you judge someone, walk a mile in their shoes. This way if you're right you will have a headstart and they will be barefoot.
