Crandall New Model (1887, USA)
This typewriter boasts a wonderful Victorian design, with inlaid mother-of-pearl and hand painted roses all over its frame.
This was the first typewriter to use a single type-element (no type-bars) - well before IBM's Selectric typewriter of 1961 with its 'golf ball' typing sphere. Like the Selectric, the font style can be changed simply by putting on another type-element.
