The Typewriter Database 1961 Wizard TrueType TrueType Serial # P123315 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of James Gifford: 1961 Wizard TrueType TrueType Serial # P123315 A Brother by a different mother. Arrived filthy, covered in nicotine. Looks to be an early model, with the wire paper rest that folds over the top of the machine and isn't secured in any way. Typed better than I thought but has that tinny sound of the Japanese machines, such as my other Brothers and my Argyle. Some rust, also typical of the Japanese machines.

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.
