Bivort Stenograph Sténophile


Bivort Shorthand


This is one of the more interesting stenographic typewriters I've seen, probably because its keyboard reminds me of Mahjong tiles. It's the Bivort Sténophile and it was invented by Charles Bivort of France, ca.1904. There were at least two versions produced with slightly different inking mechanisms. They sold for $60.
