Crary Typewriter

Wanted: Crary Typewriter

In my opinion, it's engrossing. I could stare endlessly into the mouth of the Crary. Its circular keyboard is both brilliant and completely impractical. A typist's hands must surely resemble the motions of a phrenologist when using the Crary. This typewriter was invented by John Mason Crary of New Jersey and produced ca.1895 by the Garvin Machine Company out of New York. This was the same Garvin company that also produced the Kleidograph, Champion/Peoples and Garvin typewriters. The main offices of the Crary company were at 53 Crosby St in New York.
