    The Hammonia was the first European typewriter to be produced in any numbers.

    The long brass blade has the characters cut out along the bottom edge (see photo detail below). To type one lifts the blade and moves it back and forth to select a character, then one pushes the black wooden handle straight down, sort of like cutting cheese!
