Jewett 1


Duplex Typewriter Co., Des Moines, Iowa
1892 - serial no.1926

The Jewett is a very fine quality machine. Being an understrike typewriter, one lifts up the carriage to look underneath to see what has been typed. With no shift key in the design, each key has just one character. A double keyboard is required.

This typewriter sold for $100.00.

"Best in the world! The good points of all other single center typewriters, and none of the defects, are embodied in a most scientific and thoroughly practical manner in The Jewett Typewriter."

"It possesses points of superiority that recommend it to all businessmen."
