Maskelyne typewriter. This typewriter was designed by the British stage magician John Nevil Maskelyne (1839-1917) and his son Nevil Maskelyne (1863-1924). The design used an inking pad for the keys, rather than an ink ribbon. The first model was produced from 1889 in London by the Maskelyne British Typewriter and Manufacturing Company Ltd. Nevil Maskelyne patented further models between 1892 and 1896. Artwork from the eighth volume (second period of 1891) of the French popular science weekly 'La Science Illustree'.
