DESIGN FOR A BOOK-COVER.
SPECIFICATION forming part of Design No. 17,376, dated June 7. 1887.
Application tiled April 2 IFFT. StIl1llNl).1-'l(i,.'l2il. Tennol' patent It; year-c 7'0 aZZ whom it may concern.-
llc it known that l, Rtelrum l\[A.I0lt, of the city, county, and State of New York, have invented a new and original Design for a Book- Cover, of which the. following is a full, clear, and exact description, reference being had to the accompany ing photographs, forming part thereof.
Figuret isa face view of my ncwly-dcsignul hook-cover when extended or spread out; and Fig. 2, a face view, upon a larger scale, of the same when folded, or as it appears when applied to a bound hook and as seen from the front or title side of the book, these two views being deemed necessary to fully illustrate my design.
A partofthe design consists in parallel band like ligu res on the outer face of the cover near the top and bottom margins thereof, and enti rely within the rectangular marginal outline of the cover, the same representing perforated leather straps with buckles securing the same. This featu re ot'the design has associated with it a groundwork representing leather made from alligator-skin, and has furthermore associated with it a figure having the appearance of a separate pictorial sheet or card, and appearing as if tucked obliquely or carelessly under the buckled portion of the lower straplike figure, and has still further associated with it another figure representing another separate sheet or card tucked obliquely or carelessly under the buckled portion of the upper strap'like figure.
A 13 indicate the rectangular-shaped cover as seen from its outer surface, having figures b on it as a groundwork in representation of leather made from alligators skin. The portion A forms the front or title side of the cover after the latter has been doubled over or folded, or as it appears whenapplied to a bound book, and the portion B indicates the back portion of the cover. Said cover is ornamented near its upper and bottom margins with parallel the portion A of the cover, and giving to the whole the appearanee of a strapped satchel, as shown in Fig. 2.
Upon the portion A is a figure, l representing a separate sheet or card,whieh appears as if obliquely or carelessly tucked under the buckled portion of the upper strap-like figure G; and upon the same portion, A, is another figure, F, simulatinganother separate sheet or card ornamented by a pictorial seaside scene or illustration. This scene, which, however, may be changed, represents a bluff on which are seated two human figures, with a light house and a dwelling in the rear, the sea in front of said figures, and a sailing craft and steamer at a distance on the sea.
I claim 1. The design for a bookrover herein shown and described, the same consisting of a groundwork, 1), representing leather as made from alligator-skin, and parallel band-likc figures G 0, representing perforated leather straps, and figures l) 1), representing buckles applied to secure the meeting portions of the straps.
2. The design for a book-cover herein shown and described, the same consisting of the bandlike figures G 0, representing perforated leather straps, the figures 1) D, representing buckles applied to secure the meeting portions of the straps, and the sheet or card like figures E F, appearing as if tucked obliquely under the buckled portions of the strap-like figures, and the one of which has depicted upon it a seaside scene.
