A TTORNEY UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.

CHARLES F. HANSELMANN, OF NEW YORK, N. Y., ASSIGNOR TO PHONO RECORD BOOK COMPANY, OF BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, A. CORPORATION OF NEW YORK.

DISK-RECORD HOLDER.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented June 6, 1916.

Application filed April 15, 1915. Serial No. 21,531.

durable in construction, cheap to manufac-- ture and arranged to allow of conveniently placing a record in position in the holder or removing it therefrom. v

' In order to accomplish the desired result use is made of a disk record holder in the form of a book having a back provided at the top and bottom with retaining flanges and envelops having spacing and binding bars at their inner ends, the bars projecting beyond the top and bottom .of the envelops, and the projecting ends of the bars being engaged by the said retaining flanges to securely hold the envelope between the covers of the book.

A practical. embodiment of the invention is represented in the accompanying drawings forming a part of this specification, in which similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the views. v

Figure 1 is a face view of the disk' record holder in open position; Fig. 2 isa transverse section of the same on the line 22 of Fig. 1; Fig. 3 is an enlarged sectional open at the top, and each is provided at its lnner end with a reinforcing spacing and blnding bar E projecting beyond the top and bottom of the envelop to provide retaining members engaged by top and bottom flanges C and C of the reinforcing back member C. Each flange C, G extends over the several projecting ends of the bars E and is provided with an angular terminal C fitting onto the edge of. the corresponding projecting end of thereinvforcing bars E, as will be readily understood by reference to Fig. 2.. By the arrangement described the bars E are securely held in position on the back B of the holder and the envelops are spaced apart so as to readily compensate for the thickness of the disk records placed in the envelops.

In manufacturing the disk record holder, one of the flanges, preferably the top flange C, is straight and in alinement with the back member C to allow of conveniently placing the bars E in position on the other flange C and againstthe back D, and then the flange C is. bent inward and its terminal C is bent downward to firmly enis provided at its outer end with a gummed surface D and the outer end of the other member D is provided with a tongue D- adapted to befastened to, a portion of the gummed surface I) on doubling up the members D and D The member D is provided at the bottom with a gummed flap D folded onto the outer surface of the member D after the latter is fastened by its tongue 1) to the gummed surface D. Thus the envelop is formed with an opening at the top for the insertion or removal of the disk record. The spacing and binding bar E is extended over the tongue D and onto the remaining portion of the gummed surface D to be fastened thereto by the gum of the surface. Thus the spacing bar E overlies the tongue D* and. securely holds the same in position on. the gummed surface D andat the same time the latter is used for securely fastening the bar E in position at the end of the envelop. The members D and D are provided with the usual central openings D for viewing the title of the disk record, and the upper edges of the members D and D are pro vided with the usual cut-out portions D for obtaining a convenient hold of the record disk on removing the same from the envelop.

An extra spacing bar E is placed in position on the back B between one side of the back B and the first envelop D (see Fig. 3) to properly space this envelop from the corresponding cover.

By reference to Fig. 3, it will be noticed that the sides of the box-shaped reinforcing member (1 of'the back B converge and firmly engage the corresponding side portions of the back B thus securely holding the reinforcing member 0 in position on the back.

The back member 0 is preferably provided with a handle F for conveniently placing the holder in position in a cabinet or removing it therefrom.
