The Typist's Treasury

The book is small, 3 1/2"  X  5 1/4".
And what a treasure of a little book!

Originally published in Britain in 1934 and used by typists, inevitably at that time, women. This book was compiled by a woman. Mine is a second edition and published in 1939.

It's the sort of handbook that was used with typewriters similar to the one below which is from the early fifties; big, heavy, cumbersome and delightfully mechanical.

A workhorse of a machine!
Inside, chock-a-block with fascinating information.
