In the Field or at Home there is one writing machine that best meets the requirements of both kinds of service. It is the CORONA ' Folding Typewriter " The Machine for Personal Use " The Corona is unique among typewriters. It is so light (weighing only 6 lbs.) that the man in the field can operate it on his knees or on a campstool. It is so compact, when folded, that it can be carried as handily as a camera. Yet the Corona is all that any office machine is, less cumbersomeness and unnecessary weight. It does just as clear work with ample manifolding power. It has the same improved features-visible writing, two-color ribbon, back-spacer, etc. It is remarkably durable. It is easy to operate. And it costs but $50. The Corona has proved its value to the scientific trav eler. Colonel Roosevelt and other prominent men have used it on their expeditions. But it has a far broader field of service. It is used in big and little offices-in private homes-by salesmen on the road-by men and women in every vocation. Visit the Corona agent in your city and let him demonstrate what this efficient little machine will do for you. Or send for our interesting Booklet No. 27. CORONA TYPEWRITER CO., Inc., Groton, N. Y.
