A glimpse of the Mantelli collection (5): Blick Electric

Feast your eyes on one of the rarest and most desirable typewriters ever.


  1. First electric Blick I've ever seen. I did not think way back then anyone would be making an electric typewriter. I'd love to see the inner workings of that machine.

    1. It's famous among collectors. For a while it was thought that it was the first electric to be produced in series, in 1902. Now we know that the 1900 Cahill was also produced in series. One Cahill is known. It was featured in ETCetera a little while ago.
