Analog Laptops

I came across this. It's interesting to me, as I own one of those things. I received it as a Christmas present many years ago.

It was bought at the Bombay Company. Some writing desks very much like the one I own are available at eBay for under $100.00. Mine is not for sale because it was a gift, and I still harbor illusions that I will use it one of these days (probably in retirement).
I have a feeling these types of implement considerably predate "Victorian times," but have not done research on it. One of the reasons why these things were popular in earlier times has probably to do with the lack of desk space.
