Alexander Wilson (July 6, 1766 August 23, 1813) was a Scottish-American poet, ornithologist, naturalist, and illustrator. Wilson is now regarded as the greatest American ornithologist prior to Audubon. It was his meeting with Audubon in Louisville, Kentucky in 1810 which probably inspired the younger man to produce a book of his own bird illustrations, though Audubon's reaction to Wilson was decidedly ambiguous. Several species of bird were named for Wilson, including Wilson's Storm-petrel, Wilson's Plover, Wilson's Phalarope and Wilson's Warbler. The warbler genus Wilsonia was also named for him by Charles Lucien Bonaparte. (biographical detail courtesy of Wikipedia)

Serial Number: 361843

Condition/Details: This is an original, antique typewriter with cast, open housing finished in classic black with tole style lettering and blue and gold trim lines. Most of the function levers and buttons are plated, this model is capable of carrying a black/red combination ribbon. The original Remington red label shows well on the paper guide and the brass serial number plate is original and unaltered.

Remington began production of this typewriter in 1908. The Remington Number 10 model met market pressures to produce a "visible" or frontstrike typewriter. With this piece, typists could see their work as it appeared on the paper, without having to stop and swing the carriage upward as was necessary with upstrike machines. This typewriter has a very open design, enabling users to see its workings as they type along. This typewriter is one of extra heavy construction, with many fine features.

This piece shows beautifully with fine patina, all the keys are present and move freely. The carriage travels smoothly with a strong spring and a black ribbon is present. The carriage movement is restricted to a couple of inches, likely due to a tab or other function being set that we weren't able to decipher. This handsome typewriter shows some age/wear, concentrated at the high points.
