The Hermes Baby is one of the best portables out there, and I was eager to get my dirty hands on one of those. I finally managed to do so with this one, whose previous owner carried it everywhere. It has been a very appreciated typewriter, and now IÂ´ll try to give it a new life.
As expected, it works just great. It has seen much action, and it will be back at the front again. If I had to complain about something, IÂ´d say the bodywork is a bit deteriorated, but thatÂ´s the clear signal of how much this typewriter has been used.

The first typewriter I saw was my grandpaÂ´s Olivetti Linea 98 at the office. It was just a curio for me. Then I was given a Nakajima, which I didnÂ´t use and my grandfather took it from me because it was easier to handle than the bulky Linea 98. Now I own that typewriter, and I started a little collection in Valladolid, Spain. The Nakajima, which is "my" typewriter only returned home in 2017, almost 20 years later, when he wanted a better typewriter.
A collection that started small grew into something bigger, a nuisace for my family and a great source of satisfaction for me.
RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Hermes Baby on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Hermes Serial Number page and the Hermes Baby By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
