Specification of Letters Patent.

Application filed September 24. 1906. Serial Nor 336.051.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, CHARLIE H. DoUGLAss,

a citizen-of the UnitedSta-tes, residing at Philadelphia, county ofPhiladelphia, and State of Pennsylvania, have invented a new and useful Improvement in Holders for Gramophone Disk Records, of which the following is a 'full, clear, and exact description,

drawings, whic tion.

The object of my invention is to store and form a part of this specificatr'ansport gramophone' disk records'in such a Way as to preserve from injury the faces thereof containing the indented records, en-

- able the records to be classified in an orderly manner, and' permit ready 4 and convenient access to any desired record.

The invention consists in a holder having compartments for containing any desire number of records, the holder .being constructed and arranged substantially as hereafter set forth.

In the drawings, which illustrate a'preferred embodiment of my invention: Figure 1 is a plan view of a sheet of'the material of which the holder is composed, said sheet being cut away preparatory to folding and pastlng. Fig. 2 is a view of the completed older before the several units thereof are folded together. Fi 3 is a perspective view of the completed ho der.

Any suitable material, such as heavy sheet paper, may be used in the manufacture of the holder. The sheet is then indented as shown in .Fig. 1, by means of a cutting die or otherwise, to form a solid longitudinal central portion or body a and side portions. Each side pfition hasa series of orifices or indentations a, each of the shape. of an incomplete circle, and a series of indentations d,'

each having one edge straighhand one edge curved and having its greatest width a short distance from the mouth of the indentation. The indentations c andd alternate with each other, and the indentations c or d of one side portion are respectively opposite the indentations c and d of the other side portion;

The sheet is scored longitudinally along the lines e, which divide the central portion from the two side portions. The paper is also scored transversely along the lines f, each of which connects the meeting point of the two ed es of an indentation d of one side section wit the meeting'point of the two edges of the opposite indentation d of the had to the accompanying Patented Jan. 21, 1908.

other side section. Theindentations (1 ex- 1 tend to approximately the scoring line e, while the inner edge of the indentations c are some distance outside the scoring line e. The

scoring lines fdivide the sheet into its comunit are folded over upon the central section,

they will overlap each other, as shown in Fig. 2. An adhesive substance is applied to the surface of the two flaps of each unit along the edge thereof adjoining the straight surface of the indentation (Z, as shown by the surface shading g. .An adhesive substance is also applied along the outer edge of the side flap 1) of each unit, as shown by the shaded surface h. The side flap 1) of each unit is then bent over, on one scorin line 6, upon the face of the central portion 0 the unit. The other side fla b is then bent over, on the other scoringline e, upon the face of the side flap 1). The gummed surface of the flaps b adhere to the opposing surface of the cen- I edge thereof adjoining the closed edge of the ad acent receptacle. Each receptacle is made of a size suitable for the particular size of disks which it' isintended to receive. The

circular opening formed by the indentations c, c, of the flaps b, b, is of a size approximately corresponding to the size of the circular central part of a disk, on which central part, as is well known, the record is not formed, but which contains, among other data, the title of the musical selection recorded on the face of the disk outside of and concentric with, the said circular central part. The holder is then folded on the lines f in such manner thattwo adj oiningiunits face each other, thus forming 1 e holder having receptacles openv a book-l ing to receive the disks along one ofthe edges,

of the holder, as shown in Fig. 3.

After the records are inserted into the holder, and it is desired to extract a particular record therefrom, the holder may be manipulated in a manner corresponding to the turning over of the leaves of a book. The title of the records are exposed through the circular openings formed in the several conipartments, enablin the particular record desired to be,read' y located. The central portion is prolonged beyond one ofthe end 5 units to form a flap. i, which, when'the folder is closed, is folded over the o posite end unit, thereby closingthe edge 0 the holder through which the records are inserted and withdrawn.

o l-laving now fully described my invention, what I claim'and desire to protect by Letters. Patent is:

'A holder for 'amophone record disks 4 comprising a longitudinal central portion of' 15 uniform width and two side portions, each side portion having a series of orifices extending inwardly from its edges, each orifice being of the shape of an incomplete circle and of less depth than the width of such por- 20 tion, and having also a series of indentations I extending inwardly from the edge of such side portion and of a depth substantially equal u tothe width of such side portion, the in- 1 dentations and orifices ofeach side portion being arranged alternately, and the indenta tions and orifices of opposite side portions beingrespectively oppositely arranged, said side portionsbeing folded over upon the central'portion and secured togetherat their adjacent edges and secured to the central portionalong one of the two'edges formed b .each indentation, substantially as describe In testimony of which invention, I have i
