This elegant elongated typewriter pioneered the essential elements of the modern typewriter, with four rows of keys, front-strike visible typing, and a single shift key. However, the Underwood typewriter would steal the show soon after in 1896 by having the same optimum design features as the Daugherty but in a much better functioning machine.

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.
