Bartholomew Shorthand Typewriter


Bartholomew Shorthand


The Bartholomew is a specialty typewriter, a stenographic typewriter. It was invented by Miles M. Bartholomew in 1879 which earns it the distinction of being the first ever commercially successful stenograph to be produced. With their 10 keys, these machines produce dots and dashes, similar to Morse code, and are able to generate up to 150 words per minute.
