J. MOSKOWITZ BOOK CORNER PROTECTOR Filed Aug. 1927 Ha 5a H m M m a Fatented July 10, 1928.




Application filed August 5, 1927. Serial No. 210,759.

This invention relates to book corner pro tee-tors.

Among the objects of this invention s to provide a book corner protector made of two pieces of metal having beaded engage ment with each other and yet having an edge wall of maximum thinness along the edge of the book corner.

A further ob ect of this invention is to provide a book corner protector of two-'- thickness and solidity of said device, and

provides particularly for neatness in edge formation of the device. I 7

Still a further object of the invention is to provide a device having the advantages above enumerated and which is very inexpensive to manufacture.

With the foregoing and other objects 1n view the invention consists in the arrangement and combination of parts hereinafter described and claimed, and while the invention is not restricted to the exact details of construction disclosed or suggested herein, still for the purpose of illustrating a practical embodiment thereof reference is had to the accompanying drawings in which like reference characters designate the same parts 7 in the several views, and in which Figure 1 is a perspective view of a book provided with corner protectors embodying the invention.

Fig. 2 is a perspective outside View of said book corner protector in detached position.

Fig. 3 is a perspective inside view of the device shown in Fig. 2. V

Fig. 4 is a sectional view taken on the line 44 of Fig. 3.

Referring in detail to the drawings, 10 denotes a book corner protector embodying the invention,.and adapted to be secured upon the covers of any book 11.

,Said book corner protector is made of two pieces 12 and 13, which are of any suitable material preferably polished nickel steeL- The pieces 12 and 13 are of triangular form, the former constituting the outside member and having edge walls 12, and x the latter constituting the inside member positioned within the walls 12. The walls 12 have flanges 12 making a comparatively sharp right angle therewith, and projecting inward to have beaded engagement with the member 13 as shown at B. The bead B forms a re-enforcement for the device 10 to prevent damage to same as for instance at 10", in'the event a book is dropped. The walls 12, however, provide a single thickness ofmetal along the edges of the book, thus insuring mimimum thinness of the device and preventing same from catching at the open ends 10 thereof.

The beads B increase the thickness and solidity in appearance of the device 10, are flat in form, and permit a high degree of neat-mess in construction of said device. No solder, or the like, is used, so that the device can be inexpensively manufactured.

To provide for reliable attachment of the device to a book cover, a plurality of indentations 13 are provided in the member 13. Removability of the protector 10 is facilitated by the bead B which, for-this purpose, acts as a finger piece. I

To prevent the outer or exposed surface of the protector 10 from becoming scratched a design 10 is provided on the member 12 and'the walls 12 thereof.

- I claim 1. In a book corner protector, the combination of an outside member, and an 111- side member, the former having edge walls within which the inside member is positioned, said walls having inward extending flanges, said flanges having beaded engagement with the inside'member. I

2. In a book corner protector, the com bination of an outside member, and a separate inside member, the outside member havmg edge walls extending toward the inside member, said inside member being positioned within said edge walls, said edge walls hav- JACOB MOSKOWITZ.
