Patented Aug. 23, 1932 JENNIE rosnnn, or PLVAINFIELD, N W JERSEY t BOOKMARK ER Application filed March 4,

This invention relates to a book marker, the general object of the invention being to provide a strip having its ends bent to engage the ends of a page of a book or of a card or the like, and a member extendlng at right angles from the strip and fastened thereto and adjustable as to its length with means at the outer end of said member to carry an index card whereby the page of the 1 book or the card can be readily marked and indexed.

This invention also consists in certain other features of construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts to be hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawing and specifically pointed out in the appended claims.

In describing the invention in detail, reference will be had to the accompanying drawing wherein like characters denote like or corresponding parts throughout the several views and in which Figure l is a view of the device showing the same attached to a page or card, said page or card being shown in dotted lines.

Fig. 2 is a section on line 22 of Fig. 1.

Fig. 3 is an end view of one of the ends of the longitudinal member.

In these views, the numeral 1 indicates a longitudinally extending member which has its ends bent on itself as shown at 2, with a roll formed at the point where the bend is made, as shown at 3, and the numeral 4L indicates a strip having one end cemented or otherwise fastened to the central part of the strip 1 as shown at 5. This member 4: is provided with the pairs of slits 6 through which pass the strip 7 as clearly shown in Figs. 1 and 2. Thus the strip 7 can be adjusted longitudinally'on the member 4 and outward movement of the strip 7 is prevented by its T-shaped inner end 8. The outer end of the strip 7 is bent over as shown at 9 so that a small card 10 can be placed in the fold and suitably connected to the two parts by cementing or the like, and which card carries the index number or other data as shownat 11- in Fig. 1.

As shown in Fig. 1, the looped ends of the strip 1 are placed in engagement with por- 1932. SeriaLNo. 596,828.

tions of the end edges of a pageof: a hooker,

a card or the like, so as to holdthestrip;

on the card and then the member 7 is pro jected on the strip 1 so that, the outer end of the strip 7 will project beyond the'outer edge of the page or card sothat the data at the outer end of the strip 7 can be seen when the book is closed. l

By providing the rolls 3 at each end of the strip 1 a space is formed to receive the V edge of the page or card so that the-edge isnot damaged, and by placing the'thumb or finger on said roll and slightly bending the same, the fold 2 will move away from the rest of the strip so that the" device can be readily placed over'the page and then when the pressure is released on the fold 2, the same will return to its normal position and thus terial, though I prefer to use transparent celluloid.

It is thought from the foregoing description that the advantages and novel features of the invention will be readily apparent.

It is to be understood that numerous changes may be made in the construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts provided that such changes fall within the scope of the appended claims.-

Having thus described my invention, what Iclaim as new is a 1. A device of the class described comprising a strip formed of flexible and transparent material and having its ends bent over to engage portions of the end edges of a page of a book or the like, the material being rolled at the points of bends to form tubular parts, a second strip formed of the same material asthe first and having one end connected to an intermediate part of the first strip, said sec- 0nd strip having pairs of slits therein, a

slightly clamp the page between itself and Q.

third strip passing through the slit whereby saidthird' stri is slidably supported on the second strip,t e outer end of the third strip being folded over to receive a card carrying indicia, and said'third strip having an enlarged inner end for limiting the outward movement thereof. o

2. A device of the class described comprising a strip having its ends bent over to engage portions'of the end edges of a page of a book or the like, the material being rolled at the points of bends to form tubular parts,

a second strip having its inner end connectedwith an intermediate partfof the; first strip,

said second strip having'pairs of slits therein, a thirdstrip passing through the slits Whereby said third strip is slidably supported onthe second strip and indicia at the outer .end of the third-strip.

In testimony whereof IiafliX my signature. JENNIE POSNER.
