1947 Royal Quiet De Luxe Serial # A-1314097 1947 Royal Quiet De Luxe typewriter, Serial # A-1314097 John Munroe's 1947 Royal Quiet De Luxe typewriter. 2016-11-25 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of John Munroe: 1947 Royal Quiet De Luxe Serial # A-1314097 "Sweetheart of the Rodeo"

Fine shape and types like a dream. Feels small and delicate to the touch but still capable of pounding out pages. Plastic key covers were a surprise (thought they would be glass as they appear to be) but it is post-war after all. Case in beautiful condition and a joy to carry - somehow feels less burdensome than some ultra-portables. My new favorite!

Sphinx of black quartz, judge my vow.

From Toronto Canada. Tokyo-based entrepreneur since 1998 and meditation teacher since 2000. Learned to type in Grade 9 following mind-altering lunches and still experience flashbacks while typing. Mother did shorthand and typed 90 wpm as stenographer, dad pecked out haiku on his old typewriter as long as I remember. Moved to thermal printing, 8-character display CanoWord Pen 24 in 1986 when my typewriter broke, then to FujiXerox, Mac and iPhone. Bought my first typewriter of the new millennium (a Lettera 32) in March 2015. Muscle memory has graduated to neural reboot--every moment at the typewriter brings back fresh memories of type-happy childhood and visions of literary grandeur. Use typewriter for inspiration/rough drafts and computer/iPhone (Scrivener/Evernote) for polishing.
