Own Harlan Ellison's First Typewriter

Harlan Ellison is selling his first typewriter, a gift from his mother that he used to create some of his earliest works. This is the item you need to get, if you're the type who believes that some of Ellison's angst and spirit was poured into that machine as we worked on it.

I am a strong admirer of Ellison, though I admit I am not sentimental enough to want to own his typewriter.  That seems more fetishistic than realistic. But I did enjoy the explanation of why the typewriter is for sale, as well as the machine's history and Ellison's attachment to it. You can find all that and more on the broker's web site.
