The Typewriter Database 1968 Olivetti-Underwood Lettera 33 Serial # 4616874 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of James Gifford: 1968 Olivetti-Underwood Lettera 33 Serial # 4616874 I've been looking for one of these for a while. I wasn't looking for one with a missing left shift keytop, but what the heck. Needs a good cleaning and some work. Made in Canada, sold out of a shop in Montreal, Quebec. I see these branded in different ways, including DL (not marked as such on this machine). Neat black and red case. Doesn't seem as well made as earlier Olivettis.

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.
