The type-writing machine

6/23/1868

In 1868, C. Lantham Sholes, Carlos Glidden, and Samuel W. Soule received a patent for their improved type-writing machine. In their application, they wrote that “the type-writer is the simplest, most perfectly adapted to its work...and in every way the best of all machines yet designed for the purpose.”
