Crandall - New Model - 1886
Crandall - New Model, Crandall Machine Company, Croton, N.Y.
The Crandall was the first typewriter to print from a single element or "type sleeve", well before IBM's
"Golf ball". This type sleeve is a cylinder, about the size of your finger, which rotates and rises up one or
two positions before striking the roller, achieving 84 characters with only 28 keys. The machine has a
wonderful Victorian design and is decorated with hand painted roses, accented with inlaid mother
of-pearl. The Martin Howard Collection www.antiquetypewriters.com
