Stenodactyle Lafaurie Stenograph

Wanted: Lafaurie Stenographic Typewriter

This stenograph, marketed as the Sténodactyle Lafaurie, was invented ca.1902 in Paris, France by Jules Lafaurie. Though one other source mentions that just one example is known, obviously there are more. Nonetheless, the Lafaurie stenograph is a very desirable and scarce specialty typewriter. One of its most attractive features are the mother-of-pearl keyboard. There were two versions available of the Lafaurie Stenograph: the standard model for 290 francs and a de luxe model for 310 francs. I am unsure what distinguishes the two.
