Very much like the look of the typewriter, fast shipping and very friendly seller. we had a few issues with the item but the seller was so great we are giving it 4 stars. She worked with us to resolve our issues and was very reasonable, professional and timely. Thank you!

A collector who loves to share

Many years ago I started collecting antiquarian books. Like most hobbyists I soon amassed them until every room in my house had at least a few old books. I tend take Horace Mann's word seriously when he said, "A house without books is like a room without windows." All the books offered here have been hand selected for interestingness and condition. Most of them have been in my own collection for years and I enjoy passing them along to fellow bibliophiles.

In the rust belt, we are fortunate there is a wide selection of old books, typewriters and other well used relics of America's past. I have always been a fan of typewriters and feel they go together with my books like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, assuming you are not allergic to peanuts.

The typewriters I find are cleaned up without using harsh chemicals, therefore they are not "refurbished" machines. I do my best to get them working again but sometimes a key might stick a little or there may be a few paint chips. I find this to be a welcome quirk of the machine and a testament to surviving into the 21st century. At the moment I enjoy collecting Remington 2 portables and other pre-war portables.
