In a comment to my last post on November 13th (A True Newspaper Man's Typewriter), it was suggested that I copy the brochures that accompanied that particular Royal Quiet Deluxe typewriter and post so others could see them in detail. That I have now done.
There were four documents that accompanied the typewriter and appear to have been provided by the Royal distributor upon purchase. I have a link to each below. Very interesting reading. The information is in PDF format.
The typewriter was apparently purchased circa 1953 from Steeves Typewriter Company, 910 North 7th Street, Kansas City, Kansas.
Hope you enjoy the documentation.

Interesting in that it provides incite to how secretaries were expected to function in the office and how to maintain the typewriter in the office in 1952.
