No, it's not a typewriter, but it is a type of communication device so it interests me. The Telepathic Spirit Communicator is a board game that was used to communicate with spirits, like a Ouija board. It was invented by William Braham, ca.1900, and sold by Braham & Company of Manchester, England. The company also offered a deluxe version called the Wonderful Spirit Communicator. Some of these "communicators" may be labeled as being sold by Two Worlds Publishing Company, also of Manchester. If you have any version, please be in touch.
