The Typewriter Database 1954 Royal Quiet De Luxe Serial # RA-2981742 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of John Munroe: 1954 Royal Quiet De Luxe Serial # RA-2981742 "Radar"

Good condition though needs a thorough cleaning. Types beautifully and quietly with a nice elite typeface. A peach. Thanks to Alan Seaver for posting the manual - never would have figured out the Magic MarginsTM without it!

From Toronto Canada. Tokyo-based entrepreneur since 1998 and meditation teacher since 2000. Learned to type in Grade 9 following mind-altering lunches and still experience flashbacks while typing. Mother did shorthand and typed 90 wpm as stenographer, dad pecked out haiku on his old typewriter as long as I remember. Moved to thermal printing, 8-character display CanoWord Pen 24 in 1986 when my typewriter broke, then to FujiXerox, Mac and iPhone. Bought my first typewriter of the new millennium (a Lettera 32) in March 2015. Muscle memory has graduated to neural reboot--every moment at the typewriter brings back fresh memories of type-happy childhood and visions of literary grandeur. Use typewriter for inspiration/rough drafts and computer/iPhone (Scrivener/Evernote) for polishing.
