Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented June 1, 1909.

Application filed July 11, 1908. Serial No. 443,071.

To all whom it may concern: I, Be it known that I, J ACOB'GULLONG, a citi- -zen of the United States, and a resident of Holyoke, in the county of Hampden and State of Massachusetts, have invented a new andlrriproved Display-Stand, of which the following a full, clear, and exact descripof the intermediate holders; and


This invention is an improvement in display stands, relating moreespecially to such devices for holdin ma azines, books, cards,

apers, and artic es of similar nature, and lies in view a revoluble body having vertical P eripheral strips or other equivalent means 1 on which are adjustably secured-radially, arranged channeled holders ada ted to on age the articles on display on t e top and bottom edges, and holders arranged f at a proximately right-angles to a diameter of tlde body and attached to the stri s intermediate the radial holders, adapter to like wise engage such an article, one of the engaging members consisting of a pivotal clip which permitsof the lateral insertion of the article and o crating to tilt the same forwardly when t e article is removed from the holder.

Reference is to be had tothe accompanying drawings forming a part of this specification, in which similar characters of reference indicate qorrespondingparts in all the views.

Figure 1 is an elevation of my improved display stand as preferably constructed; Fig. 2 is a horizontal section of the same substantially on the line 2-2 of Fi 1 Fig. 3' is a fragmentary vertical sectiona view on the line 33 of Fi 2;Fig. 4 is a fragmentary view of the revo uble body of the stand on an enlarged scale, illustrating the manner in which the article is removed from the intermediate holders; Fig. 5 is a face view of one perspective view of one of the radial In the construction of thestand there is provided a edestal 5, which carries a standard 6 on which the body of the stand is revolubly mounted, the pedestal being preferably supported on rollers in order that the stand ma be convenientl moved about. This body in the 'referre form of my invention is made up 0 a number of spiders 8 Which'are shown to be square in shape and have attached to their corners, as well as to their sides, vertical strips 9, forming the periphery of the body. The entire weight of the body and the devices which are supported thereon,

is sustained on-a bearing '10 arranged at the 6 is a" olders top, which, as shown in Fig. 3, is of an antifrlction nature. justable on the standard to vary the elevation of the -body, by the set-screw 1O shown in Fig. 3.

Adjustably attached to the cornerstrips of the body are radially-arranged channeled holders 11, in which the magazine, book, paper or other article is adapted to be inserted edgewise and engaged at the top and bottom edges. Between the inner ends of the holders 1-1 are adjustably attached to the intermediate-strips -9, trough or channeled holders 1 2 which similarly engage such an article, which adapts-the articles held in the re dial holders and the holder therebetween' to be viewed at the same time, as is apparent from an inspection of Fig. 1. The construction of the radial holders 11 is preferably carried out as illustrated in Fig. 6, wherein it will be observed that the same consists of a bottom late 13 having side plates or strips 14 attac ed intermediate thelr width, and a artition plate 15 dividing the holder into our channels or com artments, two arranged above and two elow. The connec 'tion of the base plate 13 with the side plates,

14 is effected by providing the former with tongues 16 which are alternately bent u and down against the outer face of the side p ates. The side plates are extendedto the rear of the base p ate, where they are bent inwardly and provided with opposed jaws 17 for engaging the opposite edges of one of the strips 9, the jaws being forced together by a screw 18 The division plate 15 is secured to the This bearing is made adbase plate 13 by roviding each with a slot extending half its ength, and with the slot in the base plate extending through its outer end as clearly shown in Fig. 6. .This construction of the radial holders adapts them to engage articles at either side and resent them on adjacent faces of the stan The plates 14 at their outer e nds are shown to be outwardly curved, which facilitates the insertion of the articles a Each holde1y12- at the top is made in the form of a tr hgh, as best shown in Fig; 5, and at the b ck is vertically slotted near the center; ior'receiving one of the intermediate strips '9 of the revoluble'bod ,to which it is attached by a screw 19 T e trough or channel in the 11 per holder 12 is designed to engage the 'artic e at the/bottom, which latter is engaged at the top by a clip 20 pivotally supported at the outer bottom edge of the corresponding holder above. lhis clip has two arms arranged at ap roximately rightangles to each other, each aving its extremities curved for respectively serving to engage the book or publication in removing it from the hdlder, and as a thumb piece. The inner arm of the clip is normally forced to operative position against the bottom of the trough by a spring 21. By this construction when it is desired to remove the book, magazine or other article in one of the intermediate holders, the clip engaging it at its top edge is pressed outwardly, as indicated in dotted outline in Fig. 4, operating to tilt the article to a position where it is readily withdriawn.

Having thus described my invention, 1

claim as new and desire to secure'by Letters Patent: v i

I. In a display stand, a holder comprising a trough-like member, a clip pivoted to said member havin rigidly connected arms, and a spring norma ly tending to force one of said arms against the under side of the member.

2. In a display stand, arevoluble body, and

holders attached to the body, having pivoted clips ada ted to retain the upper portion of the artic e on display and havingnleans to force the article outwardly from the body I when said article is withdrawn.

a 8. In a display stand, a succession of holders arranged one above the other, each com- I prising a trough-shaped member having a clip pivoted to the under side thereof, adapted to respectively en age the lower and upper port ons of the articles on display.
