Edison Mimeograph Typewriter No. 1
The Edison Mimeograph Typewriter was a product of the A.B. Dick Company of Chicago
which also manufactured Edison's Mimeograph duplicator. Printing was accomplished by turning a
large wheel at the base to select a character and printing occurred by pressing a lever at the left side.
The type struck up from the bottom requiring the operator to raise the carriage in order to view what was being
printed. Operation was very slow.
