ln case the support for the machine and the holder is very narrow, then a wire J 'is employed, the ends of the w-re resting on the bars A of the base to prevent the holder from tippingr backward.
In order to hohl the leaves of the book in an open position when the book is placed on the rack D, as indicated in Fig. l, l prefer to employ a leaf-holding device K. (Shown in Figs. 3 and i.) 'lhis device li is preferably made ot' two pieces of wire, extended parallel to each other and fastened at their ends, so as to permit of supporting,r the two wires 'over the cover and the leaves at the ends thereof,
Patent-d as shown in Fig. to the cover.
I do not limit myself to any particular material of which the holder is made, as it is evident that wood, metal, or other desirable material may be employed. It is, however, expressly understood that the si' and is so constructed as to support the rack l) asuitable distance above the top of the machine and close to the operator-s eyes to permit of conveniently readingr the matter on the copy-book or the like and without interfering with the manipulation ol' the typewriting machine.
Having thus fully described my I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters 4.-, to securely hold the leaves 1. A holder comprising a stand having a in ventiou, y
` base and a back connected with each other by hinges, and secured in an angular position by means of braces, a rack for supporting a copybook or the like, links connected by hinges with said back, and braces hinged to the back and adj ustably connected with said rack, sub` stantially as shown and described.
2. A holder comprising a stand having a base and a back connected with each other y by hinges, and secured in an angular position by means of braces, a rack for supporting a copy-book or the like, links connected by hinges with said back, braces hinged to the i back and adj ustably connected with said rack, i and means for prevent-ing displacement cf the base from its support, substantially as shown i I and described. i
