written or printed; and it consists of metallic angle or iianged strips, and the manner of coniining the back.

In the accompanying drawing, Figure lis a side view, showing the metallic angle-strip on one side of the file or book. Fig. 2 is' a crosssection of Fig. l, taken on the line x x.

Similar letters' of reference indicate corresponding parts.y

The combined file and binder consists of the two flanged strips, A A-one on each side of the papers or pamphlets filed, or on the covers when the papers or pamphlets are bound-'- and two or more metallic fastening strips or wires,B. In the cross-section, Fig. 2, the form and posit-ion of the strips A are seen. The iian ges C C of these strips turn over onto and hold the back l), which is slipped in between the back edges of the papers or pamphlets led and flan ges, as seen in Fig. 2. The broad portion E E of the angle-strips A A rest on the papers when the iile is being illed, or on the covers (if covers are used) when the papers or' pamphlets are bound, as seen in the drawing. The papers or pamphlets, as well as thestrips A, are perforated to allow the fastenings B to pass through, when the ends are bent down to keep the angle-strips securely fastened to the papers or covers.

The papers or pamphlets are placed in the file from. time to time, as may be convenient, and, when a sufhcient number are thus collected to makea book, the fastenin gs B are bent down at the ends in any secure manner.

I do not confine myself to any particular mode of fastening. In binding the pamphlets or paper, long slender rivets may be used, it' desired. The back D may be ornamented with gilding, like the backs of well-bound books, and bear titles and dates; and the flanges C may be made ornamental, so that the book thus bound will present a very respectable appearance on the shelves of the library.

Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Pat ent- 1. A combined paperlile and binder formed'
