This Olivetti Lettera 32 is another fine typewriter from my own (far too large) personal collection. Designed by Marcello Nizzoli for Olivetti in 1963, the Lettera 32 succeeded his legendary Lettera 22 design. This example for sale is in excellent cosmetic and mechanical condition with a new ribbon installed on matching spools, with the original spool nuts.

Günter Grass, Martin Amis, Philip Roth and Georges Simenon are just a few amongst the many great writers that used an Olivetti Lettera 32. Cormac McCarthy, (Pulitzer Prize, The Road ) used his for forty-six years and estimates that with it he wrote about five million words. It was sold at a charity auction in 2009 for US$254500. He then replaced it with a newer one.

This example is really lovely to use with its modern segment-shift (basket-shift) design that is easy on the fingers compared to many other manual typewriters.

It is in full working order, and features a full key-set tabulator, which is very useful extra feature for song-writing, poetry or drama. There are normal wear marks on the carriage ends as can be see in the pictures. The typewriter is quite clean, with some minor marks and scratches, and the carry case has some marks and stains but is perfectly functional. There are no repairs necessary, all features work as they should and it is ready to work. It will be transported with the carriage in the 'locked' position and a copy of the instruction manual will be e-mailed to the winning bidder or buyer.

Please see picture five for a type sample made with this machine and the installed ribbon, and feel free to contact me for more pictures or information if you wish; I am a typewriter and writing enthusiast and happy to help.


Payment in full is required within three days, and I recommend that you collect it from my home in Alingsås. However, if you wish it to be delivered to you, please pay for delivery at the end of the auction or "Fast Pris" and I will send it with DB Schenker according to your request. Although I will pack it very carefully, delivery to you is at entirely your own risk of loss or damage, and at your own expense. Payment must be received in full and in my bank account before collection or delivery, therefore please consider payment processing time when making your choice of payment method.

Good luck and happy writing! -Charles
