Wanted: Hammonia Typewriter
The Hammonia was produced ca.1882 making it German's 1st typewriter. It was produced by the Guhl & Harbeck Company of Hamburg. Some Hammonia were rebranded for French speaking markets simply as the "Machine à Écrire," which translates to "typewriter." The French variant lacked the eagle decal of the original German version. Hammonia typewriters were equipped with a kickstand under their base so the rear of the typewriter could be raised making it more ergonomic to type with. The Kosmopolit was its successor.
