Comment All about an object constantly used by a celebrity (Score 1) 227

The person who buys this is unlikely to use it, but having a typewriter that was an instrument of creation for famous works is like having a guitar played by Hendrix at Woodstock or a pen used to sign the Declaration of Independence.

This typewriter was used for every single book by the author. Pretty amazing!

Computer/typewriter/inkwell/chisel—it's not what it is, it is who used it and for making what and for how long.

I have a theory that it's impossible to prove anything, but I can't prove it.
