SPEGIFIGATIONforming part of Letters Patent No. 538,487, dated April 30, 1895.

I Application filed December 11 1894.. Serial No. 530,558. (No model.) I

To all whom it'may concern: I 7

.Be it known that we, HENRY'GREMMEL, of

Rutherford, Bergen county, New Jersey, and

ROBER SNEIDER, of Brooklyn, New York, have invented an Improved Blank Book, of which the following is a specification.

v This invention relates to an improvement in blank books, and it consists of a book formed of a series of leaves, each leaf of which is composed of two sheets of paper, the backing being wider than and having its outer edge turned over the corresponding edge of the facing to close the ends of the pockets; the facing being formed into pockets, the rear sides of which are pasted to the backing, while the outer side of each pocket is formed of a double thickness of paper, as will be more fully described hereinafter.

The object of this invention is to provide a blank book for the reception and display of postal cards,.sample cards, photographs and similar articles.

In the accompanying drawings, Figure l is a perspective view of our improved blank book. Fig. 2 is a plan of a part of one of the leaves; Fig. 3, a longitudinal section of a leaf on line 3 3, Fig. 2; and Fig. 4, a transverse section on line 4 4, Fig. 2.

The leaves of our improved blank book are formed essentially of two parts, a backing a, and a fluted facing 1).. The fluted facing b, is so folded that a number of pockets 0, c, are formed beneath one another in parallel rows (Fig. 3). To obtain this result the upwardly turned portion of each flute is less than half the height of the downwardly turned portion,

the leaves are bound into a book A, by tapes (1, passing through slits cl, or otherwise.

Our improved book will accommodate a large number of stamps, cards, or photographs and permit them to be arranged in a neatand orderly manner. It is of special value as a stock book used by dealers of postage stamps.

What we claim is A blank book formed of a series of leaves, each leaf consisting of two sheets, or thicknesses of paper, the backing being of a greater width than the facing, and having its outer free edge turned over the outer edge of the facing so as to close the outer ends of the pockets; the facing being formed into a series of horizontal parallel pockets and that portion of the facing which forms the rear side of each pocket being pasted or gummed to the backing, while the outer or front side of each pocket is formed of a double thickness of unpasted paper, whereby the leaves have the requisite amount ofstiffness while the outer portions of the pockets are flexible, substantially as shown.
