The Thürey typewriter was invented by Eduard Thürey of Cologne, Germany. It was produced ca.1909 by the company of Thürey Schreibmaschinen Gesellschaft. One could assume that this was the wrong design at the wrong time, and rightfully so. Maybe had it been introduced 25 years earlier it would have had more commercial success. To counter that point I would mention that the Mignon, an index typewriter which had a more peculiar design and was introduced just a few years prior, survived for about 3 decades into the mid 1930s. The Thürey at least had a keyboard. Nonetheless, there is no debating that it was a spectacular, gorgeous failure.
