The Typewriter Database 1929 Geniatus Geniatus Serial # 9127 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Maxim Suravegin: 1929 Geniatus Geniatus Serial # 9127 Germany went through a major economic crisis in the wake of World War 1. This may well explain why Germany in the 1920s was the source of quite a range of cheaply made index typewriters that were considerable market successes. The Geniatus is a good example.



This unlikely little machine appeared in 1928 as a product of (probably) the Gundka factory, that also produced the range of Frolio/Gundka index typewriters. The Geniatus looked slightly more impressive than the Gundka but the machine printed with a simple strip of rubber type, attached to the outsides of the swinging sector on top of the machine. The printing point was behind a fixed roller in front of the sector
