Despite its unusual appearance the Mignon embodied a very clever design, facilitating a smooth and fast operation for a typewriter with no keyboard. One's thumb and forefinger pinch the black button to move the pointer to a character. This moves the type-cylinder into position over the paper before the black key in front is pushed down to type. The second black key gives a space.
The index plate and the type-cylinder could be changed, allowing for different languages and fonts. The Mignon was popular for three decades and was produced into the early thirties.

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.
