Blickensderfer typewriters

The Blickensderfer line includes George Canfield Blickensderfer (1850-1917), who invented and manufactured the first "element" typewriter (similar to the IBM Selectric, which came much later).

I am providing these images and descriptions as a service to those with little more than a passing interest in such matters. I don’t know much about typewriters, so if you are looking for typewriter information, you’re better off contacting someone else — I won’t know the answer to your question, no matter how simple it is.
