Not long ago, I found this 1888 edition of Lippincott’s at an antique shop in Gardnerville, Nevada. I also sighted two or three typewriters, though nothing tempting enough to purchase (you can see one sighting here).
The magazine features a few typewriter advertisements, including those for the Remington Standard No. 2, the Hammond, the Caligraph and the World Type-Writer (yes, “type-writer” hyphenated).
Quite a remarkable experience to leaf through this magazine, imagining what it would have been like to have read it in 1888.
I paid $4 for mine, which I intend to keep whole.
