ALFRED O. HAFELY, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.
INVOICE OR SCRAP BOOK.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented June 15, 1909.
Application filed December 21, 1908. Serial No. 468,476.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I, A F1 .ED C. HAFELY, a citizen of the United States, residing in the borough of Brooklyn, in the county of Kings, city and State of New York, have invented an Improvement in Invoice or Scrap Books, of which the following is a specification.
Files for invoices, bills or letter-heads are usually composed of numerous superposed strips of paper or suitable material sewed together along near one edge, each strip being surfaced on one side with adhesive material and the connected series bound into covers. Scrap-books and postal card albums are usually made in a similar manner, but of sheets slightly smaller than the covers, and frequently with adhesive material in predetermined spaces apart on the sheets or pages. The presence of moisture with either of this class of strips or sheets regardless of the source of the moisture, has caused these strips or sheets to stick together so firmly as frequently to render useless the books of which they form a part, and it has therefore been common to loosely interpose or introduce and secure thereto additional strips, sheets or leaves treated with a moisture proof material.
In carrying out my invention, the strips, sheets or leaves for file, invoice, or scrapbooks, are coated on one side with a surfacing of adhesive material similar to that employed for use in postage stamps, and prepared on the other side or surface by a surface treatment or with a moisture-resisting material which latter is preferably paraflin. Both or either the adhesive material or paraffin may be applied to the whole or any predetermined or spaced part of the sheets, leaves or stubs.
In the drawings, Figure l is a perspective view illustrating a series of superposed connected strips in the form of a stub. Fig. 2 is a perspective view of a collection of superposed sheets and part of the covers there of forming a scrap-book, and Fig. 3 is a diagrammatic illustration of a part of a stub or sheet treated according to my invention as broadly described and claimed in an application for Letters Patent filed by me of even date herewith.
a Fig. 1 represents superposed strips forming a file or stubs connected by a line of sewing 2 or equivalent staples along near one edge and adapted to be bound into covers in any manner well-known in this art.
0. represents in Fig. 2 a series of superposed leaves connected together along near one edge in a similar manner to the stubs Fig. 1 and a represents part of the covers into which such leaves are bound in any manner well-known in the art.
In both Figs. 1 and 2 the uppermost surface of the stubs or leaves is in whole or in part surfaced with adhesive material at Z). The stub strips are preferably entirely surfaced with adhesive material. The leaves may be entirely surfaced with adhesive material but the same is preferably applied in predetermined or spaced parts of the sheets, leaves or stubs. This is arranged according to the purpose for which the book is to be employed. If it is a scrap-book for postal cards the spaced parts of adhesive material are comparatively few as it is only necessary to stick the postal to the sheet at a comparatively small part of a surface. If it is desired to use the scrap-book for clippings and newspapers the leaves may be entirely surfaced with adhesive material. If bills or invoices are to be filed in the book, other predetermined forms of the adhesive material may be employed.
0 represents the opposite surface of each stub, strip or leaf treated with moistureproof material such as parafin. This is preferably applied to the entire surface of the stub, sheet or leaf, for the reason that it is easier to apply it in that way than to apply it in predetermined or spaced parts; the material thereby being slightly strengthened in its tenacity.
I do not wish to limit my invention to any character of material, superposed as strips or sheets, nor to the application of the ad hesive material to the entire or any predetermined part of one surface of each sheet, nor to the moisture-proof material parafiin applied to any portion or the whole of the opposite surface of the strip or sheet.
As equivalents for paraflin, I may employ an oil, wax, caoutchouc, resinous gum, collodion, preparations of cellulose, or any other similar suitable material, and in lieu or as an equivalent of the treatment of one surface of suitable material by impregnation, I may only treat by surfacing with any suitable waterproof material that will dry upon the surface as all of these features are within the scope of my invention.
I claim as my invention:
1. As a new article of manufacture, a book for invoices or other uses, having a series of connected members each having one side surfaced with adhesive material and the other side treated with moisture-resisting material.
2. As a new article of manufacture a book for invoices or other uses, having a series of connected members each having one side surfaced with adhesive material and the other side treated with paraflin or other suitable material.
3. As a new article of manufacture, a series of superposed strips, sheets or leaves connected together along near one edge and 1 each member thereof having one side surfaced with adhesive material and the other side treated with moistureresisting material, and covers to receive such series and into which the same is bound.
4. As a new article of manufacture, a series of superposed strips, sheets or leaves connected together along near one edge and each member thereof having one side surfaced with adhesive material and the other side treated with paraffin or other suitable material, and covers to receive such series and into which the same is bound.
Signed by me this 15th day of December A. C. HAFELY. \Vitnesses Geo. T. PiNoKNEY, E. ZACHARIASEN.
