- WWW ATTORNEY UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE.

EDWARD KIRBY BOTTLE, OF ELMIRA, NEW YORK, ASSIGNOR TO AMERICAN SALES BOOK COMPANY, LIMITED, 013 TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, A CORPORATION OF ONTARIO, CANADA.

MANIFOLDING SALESBOOK.

Application filed July 7,

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, EDWARD K. BOTTLE, a citizen of the United States, residing at Elmira, in the county of Chemung and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Manifolding-Salesbooks, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.

This invention relates to manifolding devices, and with respect to its more'specific features to manifold books as sales books and the like.

The objects of the invention are the provision of an efficient, readily manipulated, manifolding sales book in which four direct reading opaque records may be made at one writing and in which three of the records are connected to eachother and may be detached, as one, from the book.

Other objects will be in part obvious and in part pointed out hereinafter.

The invention accordingly consists in the features of construction, combinations of elements and arrangement of parts which will be exemplified in the construction hereinafter set forth, and the scope of the applic'ation of which will be indicated in the following claims.

In the accompanying drawing forming part of this specification, and in which similar. reference characters refer to similar parts throughout the several views, there is illustrated a perspective view, largely diagrammatic, of a sales book embodying the invention.

The numeral 1 indicates a support as, for instance, a flexible manila sheet. The numeral 2 indicates a pad having a stub portion 3, the pad being hinged to the support 1 at the end opposite its stub, as at 4, the pad being provided with a suitable back 5 which is relatively stiff, being composed of heavy cardboard.

The pad 2 comprises a series of superposed sets of record leaves, the topmost set being indicated by the numerals 6, 7, and 8, of which the leaf 7 is attached to the stub portion and provided with a weakened line 9 for ready separation from the stub, the

Specification of Letters Patent.

1920. Serial No. 394,504.

leaves 6, 7, and 8 being of opaque manifolding material, and attached togetherat one end 10 remote from the stub 8. The leaves 6 and 7 may be formed of an integral sheet folded on itself as at 10 and weakened at the fold 10 so that these two leaves may be readily torn apart, the third leaf 8 being pasted to one or the other of the leaves 6 and 7 near the fold line therebetween. In the present embodiment the inter-sheet, or leaf 8, is pasted to the inner face of the leaf 7 and lies between the leaves 6 and 7. Thus each set of leaves includes an outer, or original leaf 6, a duplicate or inner leaf 7, and a triplicate or intermediate leaf 8,

the original being the leaf on which the in-.

scription is directly made and the duplicate and triplicate having transmitted thereto, through suitable transfer material, the inscription made upon the original leaf. It is to be understood that the pad 2 is made up of superposed sets of leaves like those described above for the topmost set, one leaf of each set being attached to the stub.

The numeral 11 indicates a fourth, or quadruplicate leaf, which is adapted to lie between two of the other record leaves. The quadruplicate leaf is of opaque manifold material so as to provide a durable and legible record leaf.

There are provided two sheets of transfer material, as carbon sheets, bound with the record leaves 6, 7, and 8, and adapted to be respectively disposed between the record leaves of the topmost set of the series. One sheet 12 of transfer material extends from the stub of the pad 2 and is adapted to lie between the duplicate leaf 7 and the triplicate leaf 8, being in fact a transfer leaf therebetween. The other sheet of transfer material also extends from the stub of pad 2 and is folded as at 13 to provide two transfer leaves 14 and 15, one of which, 14, is

bound to the stub 3. Leaf 14: is adapted to lie between the quadruplicate leaf 11 and t e underlying triplicate leaf 8, and leaf 15 is adapted to lie between the leaf 11 and the original leaf 6 thereabove. It will be seen that the transfer leaves let and 15 are folds of a single transfersheet, this sheet being foldable around that edge of thequadruplicate leaf which is adjacent the line of connection between the original, duplicate, and triplicate leaves.

. The leaves 11 are embodied in a second pad, the stub of which is indicated at 16,

stapled to that end of the support 1, which is adjacent the stub 3 of the other pad, the several leaves 11 being adapted to lie upon the pad 2 or between the leaves of the topmost set thereof.

In setting the book, the pad composed of the leaves 11 is thrown back and the bot tom quadruplicate leaf 11 is placed between the two leaves 14; and 15 of transfer material. The two leaves T and S will underlie the transfer leaf 1% with the transfer leaf 12 therebctween, and the leaf 6 will lie on the transfer leaf l5. il ith this arrangement an inscription made upon the original leaf 6 will be copied upon the three underlying leaves 11, 8, and 7 and each copy will be On durable paper and will be erect; that is, may be directly read as under normal reading conditions, itbeing unnecessary to look through any sheet in order to read directly. 7

Thus by the above described construction are accomplished, among others, the objects hereinbefore ref rred to.

As many changes could be made in the above construction and many apparently widelydifferent embodiments of this invention could be mad without departing from the scope thereof, it is intended that all matter contained in the above description or shown in the accompanying drawings shall be interpreted as illustrative and not in a limiting sense.

It is also to be understood that the language used in the following claims is intended to cover all of the eneric and spe-.

cific features of the invention herein described and all statements of the sco as of the invention which, as a matter of language, might be said to fall therebetween/ Having described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:
