BOOK HANGER AND MARKER Filed July 12, 1932 I INVENTOR. 4,1 7.30am

ATTOR EYS.

Patented Apr. 30, 1935 UNi'iD S'E'A'ihd PAT OFFICE 1 Claim.

This invention relates to book hangers or holders, and more particularly to a type which is intended for use in connection with telephone directories, bound periodicals, magazines, and the like.

The object or" the present invention is to generally improve and simplify the construction and operation of book hangers; to provide a hanger or holder which may be quickly and readily applied; to provide a hanger or holder which is adjustable to books, periodicals, magazines, etc., of different size or length; to provide a hanger which is exceedingly cheap to manufacture; to provide a hanger which is ornamental in appearance; and further, to provide a hanger which may also be employed as a book marker.

The hanger is shown by way of illustration in the accompanying drawing, in which Fig. 1 is a perspective view showing the application of the same to a telephone directory.

Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the hanger.

Fig. 3 is a central vertical section of a book showing the hanger in position therein.

Fig. 4 is a perspective View of one of the perforated discs or washers employed in conjunction with the hanger.

Referring to the drawing in detail, and particularly Figs. 2, 3 and l, A indicates a comparatively heavy string or cord to the lower end of which is permanently attached an ornamental tassel 2. Strung on the cord are a pair of centrally perforated discs or washers, such as shown at 3 and i, and formed at the upper end or" the cord is a loop 5.

Ine cord is intended for use as a book hanger and marker, and while particularly applicable to telephonedirectories, it may be used in conjunction with bound periodicals, magazines, and the like.

In actual practice it is used as follows: Applied to a telephone directory, as illustrated in Fig. 1, it is first necessary to slip the washers 3 and 4 to the lower end of the cord. A measurement is then taken of the length of the telephone directory and a knot 6 is tied in the cord adjacent the loop end thereof. The telephone directory is then opened, preferably in the center, and spread out and the cord is placed adjacent the back section thereof, as shown in Figs. 1 and 3, and the washers are separated so that the washer 4 will engage the lower edge of the book and the washer position, as shown in Fig. l, and the cord or 10 hanger is thus held in position against the back by gravity action and, as such, will not be readily displaced. The book, together with the hanger, may be removed from the hook from time to time as required and accidental removal or disengagement of the hanger with relation to the book, when this is opened and used, will be prevented as the washers 3 and Q frictionally grip the opposite ends of the book. The hanger is, accordingly, quickly and readily'applied and remains in position at all times due to gravity action and the gripping action of the washers, and while its main use is that of a hanger, it may obviously be employed as a book marker as it can be manually removed and placed between new pages of 5 a book as desired. Hence, it may function both as a hanger and a marker.

The hanger is exceedingly cheap and simple to manufacture as it consists of a single piece of heavy string or cord, having an ornamental tassel at one end and a loop at the other, and two washers strung on the cord intermediate the knot 6 and the tassel. 'In fact, a knot at the lower end of the cord may be substituted for the tassel if an ornamental effect is not required.

While certain features of the present invention are more or less specifically described, I wish it understood that various changes may be resorted to within the scope of the appended claim. Similarly, that the materials and finish of the several 40 parts employed may be such as the manufacturer may decide, or varying conditions or uses may demand.

Having thus described my invention, what I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is A book hanger comprising a single flexible cord having a knot tied therein and forming a loop at one end; a knot in said cord adjacent its other end; and a free washer on said cord between said knots.
