INDIoATING'nEvIcE :son MEMORANDUM Books AND vTHE 1.11mk
Application led August 29, 1922. SealNo. 584,947.
temporarily or permanently, with a memo-v randum book, pad, or `the like, in such a manner as to facilitate the operation of recording and 'identifying information in any prescribed part of a page'or pages of the book, &c.; thereby obviating the necessity of writing or otherwise marking on the several pages the names or titles of the various subjects recorded or to be recorded thereon.V
Accordingly the invention, generally stated, comprises an elongated pocket, of transparent pliable material, such, for example, as celluloid, foldedinto proper form for ready association with-any'v page of a book, or the like, said pocket being designed to receive and support, det'achably, a strip or strips of paper containingk predetermined references or indications. r j l The invention also comprises variousv features of construction whereby advantages are secured, as will'be hereinafter described and claimed.
In the drawingsl Figure 1 is aperspeotivev view of an indicating device embodying lmy invention,
the v device in the form illustrated being hingedly attached toa loose-leaf memorandum book. j
Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the transparent pocket, the lower end whereof is partiallybroken away.
Fig. 3 is a view of a reference strip for entry in the pocket.
Fig. 4` is an elevation of a' form of the device comprising two strip-receiving pock-l ets in right angular relation.
Fig. 5 is a section l on the line 5-5 rof Fi 4.. l 1
Igteferring to the drawings, 1() designates an elongated pocket composed of'a {single piece of transparent pliable material, prefthat on the leaf 'or leaves will be ensured.'
erablyl thin sheet celluloid, of appropriate. shape and size. This sheet is folded along spaced longitudinal lines 11 to provide the elongated plain front portion 12 of the pocket and the longitudinally divided back portion thereof; thelatter thuslcomprising two folds 13. One of these folds is in turn folded upon itself in a longitudinal line adjacent the free edge of the other back fold in such a manner asfto present a yguide iap 14 which freely projects outwardly beyond and extends throughout the length of the body of the pocket. Thelower end of the front portion 12 is formed with a tongue 15 that is bent upward and'cemented or otherwise aliixed to the single back fold 13 and l.
the ap 14 so as to close the bottoniA of the pocket. The proximate longitudinal edges of the back folds are fastened together iny any suitable manner, as, for example, by extending one edge consistingy of the single piece of transparent material -at'the back, so as to overlap the adjacent doubled edge, and cementing the two edges together.. Where, however, the deviceis connected by hinge material to the leaf ofa book, as hereinafter described, the edges'of the back portion need not overlap, but can be directly connected by cementing the hingernaterial thereto. f
.The upper open end of the pocket is. preferably recessed at its front and back, as at 16,`to facilitate kthe insertion or the with-k drawal of a reference bearing strip 17 into or from they pocket, as occasion may require. Thestrip'l, which is preferablygof paper, and may lbe l`distinctively colored ifdesired, bearson its face ypredetermined indentiying matter throughout its length, j as illustrated, which matter is visible throughl the transparent front ofthe pocket. The` strip ispreferably ofthe same: length as a `leaf or leaves of the book or pad to which vthe deviceris to be applied, andy Vis ruled correspondingly with such leaffor leaves. ArThe strip can be conveniently cut from a leaf of the book or pad with which the device is to be associated, in which caseaccurate corre-r spondence of the ruling on the strip with When the device is applied to the book or pad the outer edge of a leaf is interposed between the flap 14 andf the; proximate back portion of .the pocket, as seen-in 1. Hence the ruling offtheleaf alines withthat of the contained strip 17, and the references on the latter enable the user to record readily in proper order on the leaf the information or other subject-matter relating to the indications on the stiip.
The transparent pocket Ycan be readilypositioned upon or adjacent the writing surface, such as the successive leaves of a memorandum book, pad, or the like; thereby obviating the necessity of marking on such surface the names or titles of the various subjects to be recorded thereon.
A particular advantage of my device is that in the use thereof no opaque substance is interposed between the lines or printing on the strip contained in the pocket and the lines or the matter written or to be written on the sheet. Hence the corresponding lines on the strip and on the sheet register with each other, and, in consequence, liability7 of error by the user is reduced to a minimum.
Another advantage is that the entire surface 'of the sheet, excepting the relatively small marginal portion thereof to which the device is attached, can be written upon; it being noted that the device is securely and accurately held in such marginal portion without the aid of extraneous fastening means.
It is to be further noted that the folded bottom tongue 'of the pocket serves as a guide for the positioning of the device'on the sheet with whicl'i it is to be used, the flap 14 being embraced by the tongue and forming therewith a lcorner receptacle for the sheet. If desired the-'bottom tongue may be omitted, in which case the lower portion of the device may be readily cut off at a proper distance in accordance with and to ada-pt it to use with a leaf or leaves of a certain size.
Any number of reference strips having different identifying matter thereon may be stored in the transparent pocket, according to the capacity of the latter, and any 'of such 'strips may be positioned from time to time in the front ofthe pocket for use in relation to the writing surface, as Voccasion may require.
The device above described'inay be independent of and separate from the book; or, if desired, the device may 'be hingedly attached to the book so as to be readily associated with the outer margins ofthe several pages, as represented'in Fig. '1. In 'that view the device is illustrated as combined with a loose-leaf memorandum boolnthe'back of the pocket being hingedl'y connected by means of a longitudinalistrip of textile fabric 18 to the front or lfly leaf 19 of lthe book, which strip A18 may also serve asa connecting member for the back folds of the pocket, as above mentioned.y When the vdevice is hingedly attachedl toa Abook as Ajust described, the device can be compactly and safely folded within the book, either upon the inner surface of the back or within the body of the book, as desired.
It is obvious that by removing the reference strip 17 from the pocket 10 and keeping the strip apart therefrom, the written contents of the book may be kept relatively private, since the references on the strip serve or may serve as a key to the written matter.
It is obvious also that the pocket may be applied to the top or to the bottom edge of a page so as to lie crosswise of the page, in which case the indications on thereference strip will be arranged with respect to predetermined vertical position or columns on the writing surface.
In Figs. 4 and -5 of the drawing, I have shown two associated transparent pockets whereof one is arranged at right angles to the other. The pocket 10 is adapted to be applied to the marginal edge of a page and the other pocket (10') to extend across and be slidable along the page. In this construction the basal portion of the flap 14 of the marginal pocket is folded upon itself to provide a longitudinal guide portion 20, and the edge of the outer rear fold 13 is extended upon such basal portion and cemented thereto, as indicated at 21. The
end tongue 15 of the cross pocket is bent to embrace and slide on the said guide portion. rIhe outer end of the cross pocket is open and laterally recessed to admit the reference strip, 17, thereto, the identifying matter on which strip is arranged with special reference to vertical positions or columns on the page to which the -device is applied. i
In using the form of device just described the cross pocket is imposed upon the page, and the marginal edge of the latter is applied to the longitudinal flap 14 of the marginal pocket 10 as inthe rst described construction, as indicated by the dotted llines in Fig. 5.
f It is to be understood that I do not limit my invention to the specific Ystructural details herein disclosed, as the device may :be variously modified within the principle vof the invention and the scope of the appended claims.
