SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent N 0. 591,746, dated October 12, 1897. Application filed April 24, 1897- Serial No. 633,753. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern.-

Be it known that I, DANIEL DUSART, J r., a citizen of the United States, residing at Syracuse, in the county of Onondaga and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Combination Pocket- Books; and I do declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.

My invention has relation to combination pocket-books, one in which may be placed and securely retained a comb, pair of spectacles, looking-glass, tooth-picks, or like articles, as well as writing-sheets.

Vith this object in view the invention consists of certain features of construction and combination of parts, which will be hereinafter fully set forth and claimed.

In the accompanying drawings, Figure 1 is a perspective view of the pocket-book closed. Fig. 2 is a plan view of the pocket-book open, showing the inside of each cover.

In the drawings, 1 and 2 denote the covers of the pocket-book. The cover 1 is provided with a longitudinal pocket 3, having a flap 4. This pocket is adapted to contain the comb, and below the pocket is an open pocket 5, adapted to contain a pair of spectacles or glasses. The cover 2 has secured to its upper end, on its inner side, a looking-glass '7, and below this looking-glass is a pocket 8, adapted to contain tooth-picks. This pocket is provided with a flap 9.

1O denotes a series of memorandum-sheets which are connected to the back 11 of the covers by a bail 12, the hooked ends of which engage loops 13. When these leaves have been used, they may be removed and others substituted.

14 denotes loops secured to the free edges of the cover, through which projects a pencil 15, which serves to keep the covers closed.

Abook thus constructed is exceedingly simple and will be found to be very useful and handy for the purposes for which it is designed.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is

A pocket-book comprising the covers 1 and V ,2, provided with pockets on their inner sides and with loops connected to the rear edges of the covers, writing-sheets, a bail engaging said writing-sheets, and having its hooked ends engaging the aforesaid loops, loops secured to the free edges of the cover, and a pencil or its equivalent inserted through said loops to hold the covers closed, substantially as set forth.

In testimony whereof I hereunto affix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
