The Automatic Writer 1897
 
 
This handwriting aid has a wire clip at the top to hold the paper in place and a sliding writing guide on 2 rails. What is unique with this 1897 device is the spring raised guide. Letters that pass the horizontal plane like lower case y and g can be written clearly because of the moveable floating writing guide.
