Antique Typewriters & Office Collectibles teaches readers to properly identify and evaluate what they have, in terms collectors can understand. In addition to typewriters, the highly collectible ribbon tins are given a special section. The nearly 400 full-color photographs allow you to recognize good machines, learn the differences among models, and distinguish the worthless from the valuable.1997 values. AUTHORBIO: Darryl Rehr is a professional journalist who began collecting typewriters in 1984. Antique Typewriters and Office Collectibles is Rehr's first book-length work in the field, but he has written extensively on the subject for almost two decades. He has been editor of ETCetera, the journal of the Early Typewriter Collectors Association. REVIEW: This identification guide offers a broad view of historical typewriters for anyone who is interested. Specifically, it tries to teach readers how to talk to typewriter collectors about the details of machines which may otherwise seem impossible to describe.
