Hermes 3000 vs Valentine Typewriter typefaces - what do You think?

New - now with an example of the two digitalized typefaces

Hello Everyone :)
My book is almost finished so I wanted to ask your kind advice on an appropriate font to be used.  After a lot of thinking I ended up selecting the Director Pica of my Hermes 3000 (my first typewriter) but the fairly special "quadrata" of the Olivetti Valentine (not the first I received as a gift but one I hunted specifically for this font) is making me think. 

Oddly I never featured my first typewriter on this blog so here you can see some pictures too. 

As you can see from the typecast your help is needed.  To repay you from your kind help I will be more than happy to send you a free copy of the book and/or  a set of 3 field notes notebooks (or just in the case you don't want the book!!)
 Shipment included anywhere in the World.

Thanks again for your help !!

P.S Sorry for the typecast typos and mistakes --it is 2:35 AM and I did scan it immediately --"as a special typeface" should read "has a special typeface..." etc. etc. Now you know why I didn't write the whole book using a typewriter :)
