1893 American 1

Inventor Louis Philippe Valiquet's little typewriter consists of a mere 35 parts! However it is a very well built index typewriter. Its selling features were ease of learning, simple maintenance, portability, and a low price of only $5.00.

I am a collector of 19th century typewriters and have built a collection that shows the remarkable ingenuity and beauty of the world’s first typewriters. I have always been interested in the beginnings of a machine when there is an eruption of approaches to making it. Early typewriters are an exceptional example of this incubation period.
