Good find! These are well made.By coincidence, someone in the UK asked me just a week ago whether I had a manual for the L35. Now I can point him to your blog. I'll also put this on my website.
You found a reasonably priced typewriter at one of Canberra's recycling centres? I didn't think it was possible any longer. Hope has been renewed!
So glad I found your blog and your delightful post about the Olivetti Lettera 35 because I just bought one!
I just found a Thrift Store discarded Olivetti Lettera 35 as new in a slightly scuffed case. Personally I am a big DTP fan and now blogs of course. But it is too good not to mark its resurfacing. One owned by Cormac McCarthy was sold for charity for $254,500 but I see they can reach over £100 here. I am grateful for the material on this site. I worked for 30 years in Bournemouth where there used to be a typewriter museum (sold to the Council for car parking extra spaces) We had his oversized book on typewriter history in my library and when it was withdrawn I took it to his flat in Bournemouth as a gift. He had throat cancer and must have died since then, in the 80's. I do not know what to do with this as trying to hide my communications using a typewriter (like in a film) is a stage we have passed now, the NSA and Extreme Process Psyops has beaten me to find a way to opt out of that stuff.Here is a link to my printing a newspaper: http://www.msbnews.co.uk/archives/msn7p9.html and monarch programming.com is me filling in what we never knew compared with this website: http://www.whale.to/b/nsa4.html I mention that as it makes an "overwind" or cloud now a very real usurper of what we used to communicate by creative thought reflection and an editing process using typing. I suggest typewriters like amateur radio, be stored and used with loving care..little else will be.
Tim. I think the author you are referring to was known as "Wilf Beeching" (not his birth name, he changed it by deed poll before war). You will find a short bio of him on the blog, among typewriter book authors. You will also find some questions about McCarthy's Lettera 32.
Great article.Do you know what the difference between a 35 and a 35L is?
