Harlan Ellison to Sell His First Typewriter

Harlan Ellison is selling his first typewriter, a Remington “noiseless” from “around 1936-1940,” with an asking price of $40,000” (though that price is negotiable). The typewriter was on display at the Science Fiction Museum in Seattle from 2004-2010.

Ellison talks a bit about the typewriter’s history at his website, and in a recent interview with The Wall Street Journal, explains his motivations for selling the device: “It’s all tied up in the fact that I’m 76 and I’m very ill and like a sage old dog I can smell when certain signs are there…. we have to get some money and as time goes by you get more and more famous and less and less wealthy.”
