1.A brief history of Adler typewriters
The Adler typewriter owes its origins from the start of the Adler company in
1896. Initially focussing on the manufacture of motor cars, motor cycles and
bicycles the company moved into typewriter production with its first model in
This first model was dubbed The Empire and it was aimed at printers and small
businesses. By this time Adler had joined with Triumph-Werke to form the
Triumph-Adler AH Company. The Empire was something of an immediate success and
caused a stir with its unique push-rod mechanism.
The Adler 7 followed a year later and became one of the most famous of Adler’s
typewriters. So well made were these machines that many were still functioning
perfectly after 50 years of use.
The first are often considered the best and part of Adler’s appeal lies in
their innovation right at the start of the typewriter era. Almost from the
start Adler got many things right and the build quality and precision drew
admiration. The name remains famous even today both among collectors and those

the name has become synonymous with the typewriter.
4.Famous Adler users
Maya Angelou, poet and activist, is perhaps the most famous contemporary
author to have used an Adler machine. The electric portable was sold at auction
following the writer’s death and made a final price of $5,000. It was bought by
collector Steve Soboroff who collects machines used by the famous.
5.Why Adler – and other typewriters – endure
The appeal of a mechanical typewriter lies in its simplicity compared with
digital devices and the tactile nature of its functioning. The sound of a
typewriter feverishly clacking away as it produces text, coupled with the feel
of the keys working beneath the fingers is something that cannot be replicated.
Electric machines may take some of the manual work out of the process but they
still possess the same unique characteristics that will vary from machine to
Each vintage typewriter, with its history and different degrees of usage and
wear, is unique (that’s why police forensic departments could identify work
produced on specific machines).
