1948 Royal Quiet De Luxe Serial # A-1540683 1948 Royal Quiet De Luxe typewriter, Serial # A-1540683 Michael Hoehne's 1948 Royal Quiet De Luxe typewriter. 2019-09-08 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Michael Hoehne: 1948 Royal Quiet De Luxe Serial # A-1540683 Yard sale find. Almost passed it up because of the high asking price (after I had asked if they had any typewriters---maybe that's what tipped them off). It had paper in it so it wasn't until I got home that I noticed it has a brand new platen still in its wrapper. Well, brand new 40 years ago. Types well, though.

While I find all of mankind's inventions interesting, I am most enchanted by the human-scale arts and devices, the ones that can be created (and repaired) in a home workshop or studio; the ones that can be understood by looking at them; the ones that do something useful or stir admiration. Typewriters work for me.
