The invention of the typewriter

The first typewriter was invented in 1808, but was not published until 1865. It was invented by Christopher Latham Sholes. After Christopher invented it he didn't think it was a good idea so he hid it and wouldn't suggest it to anyone. a few years later the idea was improved and he started to market it and found a few partners: Carlos Glidden and Samuel W. Soule.
