Ernest Hemingway's Underwood Typewriter

A prolific writer, Ernest Hemingway owned many typewriters over the years. One of the most well-preserved is this 1926 Underwood Standard Portable. Likely acquired in the late 1930s and possibly used during the writing of A Moveable Feast , it bears the marks of Hemingway's genius via letter marks on the platen. It has a paper label on the bottom that reads "Ernest Hemingway / Key West, Fla." and is accompanied by six original envelopes and envelope fragments, five of which are addressed to Hemingway, as well as four photo negatives found hidden in the case that date to his childhood and depict moments at his family's lakeside cottage in Michigan. It's up for auction now, with bidding ending on December 15th.
