It may be some early type of duplicator.  Maybe a predecessor of the hectograph.

I would have said a 19th century traveling writing desk with a formal blotter.... That cylindrical piece would be rolled over the document with a dry grit (Sand?) to dry the ink on the page? This one is extremely formal so I believe it would have some legal/honorary significance. 

The Kentucky Colonels were not formed until 1813 after the Kentucky Militia returned from the Battle of New Orleans. (Check me on the battle, I am basing that on a movie- never a good idea!). Colonel Charles S. Todd was named Aide de Camp by Governor Shelby when they returned. Is it his traveling desk? 

It does look like a travel desk Thomas Jefferson is said to have used.

I don't know. Those are my best thoughts. Am I close?

Well, I'll be darned. I really did not think it was a copy machine. 

And, heck, yes! I am extremely questionable. I hang out with you guys. rabbit

So, why would I especially know what this thing was? Was it a case of Colonel baiting? Very Happy
