Nov. 12, 1929. L. P..'HUEY 1,735318 MEMORANDUM BOOK Filed June 6, 19 23 ,MWn

flaw Wa/ v Patented Nov. 12, 1929 UNITED STATES PATENT. OFFICE 1 LESLIE I. HUEY, OF ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI MEMORANDUM BOOK Application filed June 6, 1923. Serial No. 643,741.

My invention relates to a class of memo randa or note-books in which the cover is permanent and the filler replaceable. More particularly it is a note-book in which the filler may comprise loose sheets or a bound pad. Preferably, in either case there are means for preserving certain sheets, or portions thereof, after removal from the pad, in a conspicuous place so that they are easily seen and attract go attention upon opening the binder.

In the accompanying drawing Figure 1 is a perspective view of my improved memoranda book with the cover raised and a portion of the back cut away to show the metal insert and spring clip.

Figure 2 is a cross section of the back of the memoranda book showing its construction.

The numeral 1 in the drawings indicates generally the frontcover portion of the memoranda book, and 2 the base or back portion generally. 3 indicates the outer cover of leather, or some other similar suitable substance, which extends the full length of the 15 front cover 1 andthe back cover 2. 4 1I1(l1-' cates the inner leather covering, which also extends entirely over the front cover 1 and the back 2, and together with the outer leather covering 3, forms a hinge-like jointure bean tween the front cover 1 and the back 2.

A base plate 5 is inserted in the back member 2 between the outer cover 3 and the inner cover 4. At the end of the plate 5 near the jointure between front cover 1 and back 2 are two projections 6 and 7-which preferably are integral parts of plate 5. These projections 6 and 7 extend upwardly through theinner cover 1 at right angles to thecover and are then bent back in a plane parallel to that of plate 5, then bent downwardly at an angle of approximately forty-five degrees and then again bent parallel to plate 5 but immediately adjacent thereto. Projections 6 and 7 are under tension so that any object placed beneath them, such as a sheet of paper shown by numeral 12, is firmly held in place. Ifa number of sheets are so placed, their edges will be held in alinement with each other. It

5;- will be noted that the sheet of paper 12 is provided with a line of perforations at 13, the purpose of which is hereinafter explained.

On the inside face, of the cover portion 1 I are corner pockets 8, 9, l0 and 11, which may be formed by diagonally cut slots in the inside cover 4 or by individual pieces separately applied to'said inside cover as shown in the drawing. These pieces 8, 9, 10 and 11 are so spaced as to fit a sheet of paper one-half the size of paper 12 in the drawing. The paper 12 is perforated at 13 so that it can be readily torn to a size suitable to have the corners placed under the pieces 8, 9,10 and 11, as 2 shown at 1 1.

It will be readily seen that loose sheets of paper or paper in pad form are equally adapted to use in this memoranda book, the clips being of such kind as to hold either or both forms without any alteration whatsoever. It is entirely practical to keep the available writing space clean for immediate use by placing the notes which are to be preserved in the space provided for them in the top cover.

The soft binding is flexible enough to fit comfortably into a persons pocket; The metal plate in the back furnishes a solid object to write on but is not large enough to cause the book to be uncomfortable when in a persons pocket.

I claim:

1. A memorandum book comprising front and back covers each having means for holding memorandum sheets, the means on the back cover accommodating sheets of larger size than the means on the front cover,

and a plurality of memorandum sheets each
