The Typewriter Database 1962 Blue Bird De Luxe Serial # 1252517 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of James Gifford: 1962 Blue Bird De Luxe Serial # 1252517 I think I'm in love. I picked up this snappy little number as part of a lot, and it's the gem of the bunch. I've never seen a Blue Bird in the wild. This model with Bruxelle type is in excellent condition, right down to the chrome base. It came with a case with a buckle; the zippers on both sides of the case are broken. I found inside the case the original bill of sale showing the original price and vendor, as well as the business card of the sales/serviceman, and the manual. This would be an 18b, with the tabulator.

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.
