Invented by Mr. John M. Fairfield, the Hartford typewriter is a beautifully made and an intriguing machine. Model 1 appeared in 1894, followed by a model 2 in 1896.
Fairfield had already invented the Dart typewriter in 1890. (seen here in this data base)

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.
