1912 Emerson 3 Serial # 10279 1912 Emerson 3 typewriter, Serial # 10279 Maxim Suravegin's 1912 Emerson 3 typewriter. 2017-09-01 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Maxim Suravegin: 1912 Emerson 3 Serial # 10279 Richard Uhlig is one of these people whose names are linked to a number of different machines. The Emerson, which is said to have been first marketed by 1908 is one of the more impressive examples. Most striking about this machine is the fact that the typebars are placed sideways, and swing against the platen from left and right. The sloping typebar covers give the machine a typical art nouveau appearance.

The original design was built as the Secretary typewriter, but immediately taken off the market because of an apparent patent infringement.

The Emerson was first manufactured different places. In 1910, the company sold out to Sears Roebuck who moved production to Woodstock. At the same time, a number of changes were made to the original Emerson 3 design.
