Jackson Typewriter


This Jackson typewriter was invented by John Jackson, an engineer that lived at 28 Colwell Road, Dulwich in Surrey, England. It received U.S. patent no.472,481 on April 5, 1892. An April 14, 1892 issue of the American Stationer described the typewriter rather clinically as such:

"In a typewriter, the combination of a base plate, a longitudinally slotted plate carried by the base plate and so arranged upon that a sheet of paper may be passed between the two, inking pads arranged upon the surface of the base plate, a circular printing disk or bar recessed upon its periphery and having letters or symbols formed thereon, and means secured to the base plate to insure the bringing of the required letter or symbol over the longitudinal slot."
