' NOTE-BOOK AND COPY HOLDER.
Specification of Letters Patent. Application filed June 4, 1913; Serial N 0. 771,768. i
To all whom it may concern:
Beit known that I, \ABRAM V. A. FEL'rnN, a citizen of the United States, resident of Danbury, in the county of Fairfield and State of Connecticut, have made a certain new and useful Invention in Note-Book and Copy Holders; and I declare .the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the same, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which .it appertains to make and use the'invention, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and'to letters or figures ofreference marked thereon, whlch form a part of this speclficatlon.
Figure 1 is a perspective view of the inventionwiththe note book in position. Fig.
2 IS a side view with the note book folded and placed below. Fig. 3 isa perspective .view with a card in position. Fig. 4 is a perspective view" showin the wire. frame folded. Fig. 5 is a similar view showing the wire frame partly unfolded. Fig. 6 is .means for holding a note book, of the kind a similar view showing the Wire frame wholly unfolded.
The invention is designed -to provide which opens endwise, such as is used by so 7 hereinafter set forth.-
stenographers, as well as other copy, in
open position, and it consists in the novel construction and combmation of parts, as
' Inthe accompanying drawings, illustrating-the invention, the numeral 2, indicates such a note book, and 3, the stand or holder.
This stand consists chiefly of an elon ated plate 1, of substantially rectangular s ape,
and flat except at-its ends which are provided with parallel transverse channels 4, extending from side to side of said plate. These channels are rectangular or substantially rectan ar in cross section, and their walls 5, pro ect above the level of the bottom surface of the plate which'is flush with plane middle portion 7. Usuali the bottom. 6, of the channeled portions.
Between the channeled end portions is a the holder is made of sheet metal, each end eing transversely corrugated in rectangular bends. to
provide the series of channels, and in order to stiffen the plate, the channel wall is doubled in contact at each end of the plane middle portion, as indicated at 8..
. A wire frame 9, of rectangular form, is
normally seated in the plane middle portion- 7 of-the plate, one of its ends havin pivotal bearing in the doubled channel wal at one end of said middle portion. The other end of this wire frame is provided with ofifset bends 10, .atits ends, which form pivot bearof an extension frame 12, usually of wire and of rectangular form, which is designed. also to fold down against the portion 7, of the plate. The pivoted ends of-the exten- Patented Feb. '10, 1914 sion 12, are provided with ofi'set stop hooks 14, which project outwardlaterally, and
are designed, when the extension is unfolded, to engage the lateral arms of the'frame 9, so that the extensionwill be held in the plane of this frame. The prop 11, may be engaged by its lower end with one of the channels of the end of the plate opposite to the end to which it is pivoted, and'will hold the frame 9, in a more or less inclined position, to sustain a limp note book or sheet copy. For longer copy, such as legal work, the extension 12, m y be raised, increasing the height of the ire attachment frame sufficiently for the purpose. I
The channels or corrugations of the plate 1, are usually made about one quarter of an inch wide, and as deep as they are wide, so as to "provide an angular spread of about forty-five degrees, for a note book of the usual length.
A notebook having a stiff cover should be bent open so that the cover leaves form an cover leaves, which are inclined downward angle with each other, and the ends of the and outward, are engaged with the channels at the ends of the late, so that the'backward bent bookv bri ges the middle portion and the reading pages are exposed. When the book is closed, the holdenbeing of about the same size may be carried therewith'in the pocket, for use wherever desired.- The outer end walls of the end channels may also be'doubled or bent downwardly to stiffen the device at the ends, and a lon itudinal head or beads may bev provided in t e plane middle portion for stiffening purposes. Iclaim: '1 1.- A. copy holder for note booksand the like, consisting of a flat metal plate of recrectangular form in cross-section, providing open-top recesses having-side wallsof slight downward flare, a plane-middle portion between said series of corrugations, and a closed doubled corrugation wall at each end of each of each series. p
2. A copy holder for note books and the like, consisting of a flat metal plate of rectangular form, having at each end a series of transverse corrugations of substantially rectangular form in cross-section, providing open-top recesses having side walls of slight downward flare, a plane middle portion between said series of corrugations, and, a closed doubled corrugation wall at each end of each series, and a wire frame normally folded and located within said series of corrugations upon said plane middle portion, said frame comprisin ber pivoted at one end at t e inner end and between the doubled wall of one of said series, and a prop member pivoted .to the support member.
3. A copy holder for note books and the like, consisting of a flat metal plate of rec-' tangular form, having at each end a series of transverse corrugations of substantially rectangular form in cross-section, providing open-top recesses having side walls of sli ht downward flare, a plane middle portion 5- tween said series of corrugations, and a to said frame, a support memclosed double corrugation wall at each end of said series, and a wire frame normally folded and located with corrugations upon said plane middle portion, said frame comprisingla support'meme inner end and her pivoted at one end at of one of said sebetweenthe doubled wall ries, a prop member, and a folding extension pivoted to the support member and having stop hooks.
4. A copy holder consisting of a fiat metal plate of rectangular form having at its ends series of transverse corrugations, a wire frame pivoted thereto, a prop pivoted to said frame, and a folding extension pivoted and provided with stop hooks. 5. A copy holder consisting of a flat metal plate having at its ends series of transverse corrugations, and between the same a plane middle portion, and a folding wire frame, normallyv seated on said plane middle portion, and having a ivot'ed wire prop and a folding wire extenslon having stop hooks.
In testimony whereof I 'aflix my signature, in presence of two witnesses.
