La Raphigraphe Braille Typewriter

Wanted: Raphigraphe

The Raphigraphe was invented ca.1839 by Pierre François Victor Foucault of France (his name sometimes spelled Foucauld or Foucaux). The writing machine produced decapoint compositions, a system developed by Foucault's friend, Louis Braille, now known as Raphigraphy. Though Foucault himself was dissatisfied with the Raphigraphe, it was well received by the public which resulted in the production of a limited quantity. Similar writing machine include the Czech-made Odkolek. and Italian-made Barozzi.
