This machine is a kind of "exceptionnal premium" specially made for the readers of the French "Globe Trotter" newspaper.  The mechanism is basicly made out of a Columbia Graphophone Type Q (2nd version) where some parts have been changed (motor plates) or modified (key, governor and feed screw supports).  The trunion supporting the half nut, the horn and the reproducer can be easily removed as it is self supported on the feed screw and a bar (see the Colibri).
