The Typewriter Database 1908 Blickensderfer 7 Serial # 137924 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of James Gifford: 1908 Blickensderfer 7 Serial # 137924 I gave myself an early Christmas present with this beauty. It's missing a few keys on the right side but seems to be in good shape, otherwise. I can't figure out how to unlock the carriage but will work on that (between wrapping gifts for others). I wish today's machines showed this much imagination and grace.

I have suddenly become a typewriter collector. It started with one purchase and has ballooned to a collection of more than forty in less than a year. I'm learning fast but I'm still a novice compared to others in the typosphere, including here in Toronto, where I haunt thrift shops and antique markets, and even the occasional basement. I'm a former magazine writer and published author, and a professional book editor by trade, and I learned to type on manuals despite the proliferation of electrics, so I like to think I come by my sudden and rather manic passion honestly.
