Gaze in awe at the first ever movie of a solar eclipse from recording long thought lost forever

Nevil Maskelyne, the magician, was also behind the manufacture and sale of a typewriter that, like IBM's Executive typewriter, had proportional spacing. I've found pictures of the typewriter on the Web, but never any pictures of anything typed on it, so I could judge how good a job it did. I presume that's not something as thoroughly lost as his eclipse movie, though, even if I couldn't find it.
