v Jnvento HA/.fr Kfm-0N DONE@ Filed June 26, 1939 Clttorneg Claims.

The present invention relates to improvements in sample display books.

While the invention is not limited to any particular use, it has been designed primarily for and is of especial utility in the displaying of relatively small samples of clear and colored plate glass, safety glass, flat drawn glass, figured sheet glass, Wire glass, structural glass, double glazing units, and any or all other kinds of similar transparent, semi-transparent, translucent, semiopaque, and opaque materials to be shown in sample form in various sizes and/or thicknesses.

It is an aim of the invention toprovlde a book for carrying one or any desired number of samples of this kind and providing a convenient. handy and effective way of displaying them to the trade.

In the embodiment of the invention illustrated in the drawings, the display book is ofthe loose leaf type and comprises a suitable binder containing a plurality of sample carrying leaves and description bearing leaves. The sample carrying leaves are preferably of metal or some other rigid material and have one or more openings thereinl within which relatively small panels or sheetsy of glass or the like to be displayed are secured. The description bearing leaves are preferably, through not necessarily, arranged in back of the sample' carrying leaves and contain'the descriptive matter relating to the samples carried by said leaves., When the samples are of transparent glass, thev s PATENT sAMrLE DIsPLAYBooK 4Halbert Creston Doner, Toledo, Ohio, assignor to n Libbey- Owens-Ford Glass Company, Toledo,

Ohio, a corporation of Ohio Application .lune 26, 1939, Serial No. 281,155

descriptive matter pertaining thereto can be read -f directly through the samples. On theother hand, when the samples are of opaque glass and are removed from the book for inspection, the description 'thereof appears in the opening from which the sample was taken. The sample carrying leaves are hingedly mounted and are also preferably flush with the lower edges of the binder 'so that the book can be stood on edge when A displaying the samples if desired.

Other objects and advantages of the invention will become more apparent during the course of the following description whentaken in connection with the'accompanying drawings.

In the drawings wherein like numerals are em-v ployed to designate like parts throughout the same: n.

Fig. 1 is a perspective view of a sample display book constructed in accordance with the invention;

Fig, 2 is a plan view of the book in opened position showing the front face of one of the simple carrying leaves;

Fig. 3 is a view similar to Fig. 2 but showing the rear face vofl av sample carrying leaf and the `front face of one of the description bearing leaves;

the book;

Fig. 5 is a detail perspective view-ofa-portion,

one of the sample carrying leaves taken sub--A stantially on line 6 6 of Figl3; and

Figs, 7, 8 and 9 are diagrammatic,viewsillustrating the preferred manner in which `rthe samples are inserted in place in the samplecarrying leaves. n

With' reference now to the drawings, the vsam-l ple 'display book herein providedV comprises a binder including a back; lllhaving sideportions Il and l2lto which are'attached the front and rear covers I3 andlll'respectively. The -covers I3v and I4 are preferably formed ofv al'suitable relatively stili material "andf-arehinged to the:`

side. portions l l and' l2fv of the back as indicated at l5 and i6 respectively.' The side portionsll and 'I 2 may also be hingedly attachedtothe back;

lll as at Il and lll/respectively. Y

Arranged between'thegfronjjl y 4 l i3 and I 4 are a pluralityoi alternately", sample carrying leaves-2j lilv and descriptio ing leaves 20, each leaf' 20, preferably containingfy ldescriptive matter vpertaining tothe sampleor4 l samples carried by the leaf i9 in advance .there-fvv of. This has the distinct advantage of showing' where every sample belongs, regardless of whether the/samples are transparent or opaque.

The leaves i9 and 2l) are impaled upon a plurality of posts 2| extending between and secured at their opposite ends to the side portions il and l2 of the binder. The posts 2l may lbe permanently secured to the `side portion l2 as indicated at 22 and removably connected ,withv the side yportion ll by a metal locking strip 2`3 .`slld`ably carried by said side portion. 'More specifically, the posts 2l are reduced indiameter as at 24 and received in a channel 25 in the side portion ll. The posts are formed, intermediate the ends of the reduced portions 24with circumferential anges 26. The` slidablelockinggstrip 23 is provided with a plurality of bayonet slots, vone for each post 2l. The larger endsof"v the bayonet slots are of such size that they willpa'ss over the flanges 26 on theposts and, when'in such position, the locking strip is slid longitudinally so that the smaller ends of the bayonet slots are received beneath the flanges 26 as shown in Fig. 4,

Fig. 4 is a 'transversesectional view. through l,

if "n'd rear'l covers I' the said openings, as clearly shown in Fig. 3.

Formed at the top and bottom of each opening 21 are the rearwardly extending, right angular flanges 29 and lli (Fig. 6) provided at their outer ends with the inwardly turned tabs 3| and l2 respectively. The sample is supported between the flanges 29 and 2li and held in place therebetween by the tabs 3| and 32.

'I'he anges 28 and 30 and tabs 3| and 32 are preferably struck from the metal leaf I9 and the said tabs project inwardly toward one another and also forwardly at an acute angle relative to the flanges 25 and 30 as shown in Fig. 6. 'I'he tabs 3| and 32 are adapted to exert a yielding pressure upon the rear face of the sample 28 to urge it against the leaf and thereby prevent itfrom falling out. The flanges and tabs therefore have a slight spring action so that the tabs can be moved slightly rearwardly upon insertion of the samples in the manner hereinafter described.

Each metal leaf i9 is preferably hinged along its inner side edge upon a pin 33 carried by a metal supporting strip I4 having openings for receiving the posts 2| therethrough. 'I'he supporting strips 24 preferably extend the full length of the leaves I9 and the said strips of adjacent leaves may be spaced from one another by collars l! or perforated strips of wood, heavy composition board, cardboard, etc., which i'lt over the posts 2|.

In the embodiment illustrated in the drawings, each sample carrying leaf i! is provided with six relatively small rectangular openings 21 adapted to contain six different samples which are designated a through f (Fig. 2). The description bearing leaf 2l, which is preferably disposed behind each sample carrying leaf, may be of paper and is adapted to contain, as indicated at A through F in Fig. 3, the descriptive matter pertaining to the corresponding glass samples a through f which are disposed directly in front thereof. When the samples are of transparent glass, the descriptive matter can be read therethrough, but even when the samples -are translucent or opaque, it is simply necessary to turn ver the leaf to read the descriptive matter thereon Further, since the descriptive matter bears the fe position upon the leaf 2l as the corresponding sample upon the leaf I9, the description of the sample appears in the opening in the leaf when the sample is removed.

The description bearing leaves 20 are also carried upon the posts 2| and areheld against the adjacent supporting strips 34 of the leaves I! by the spacers 35. It is of course not essential that the descriptive matter be arranged upon the leaves 2li in the particular manner described above, although such an arrangement is preferred as it facilitates the displaying of the samples and permits anyone inspecting the book to promptly and conveniently read the descriptive matter in connection with the corresponding sample to which it relates. Obviously, any number of sample carrying leaves I8 and corresponding descriptive leaves 20 can be used depending upon in place thereagainst and the size of book desired. Likewise, one or more openings may be provided within each leaf I! depending upon the size and/or number of samples it is desired to display on each leaf or the amount of descriptive matter it is desired to apply to the corresponding leaf 20. It is also preferred that the metal leaves Il be of the same height as the binder so that it is possible to stand the book on edge in an open position to display the samples.

The descriptive leaves 2l can be arranged in front of the corresponding leaves i9 if desired. Also, in some cases the descriptive leaves may be omitted and the descriptive matter 'placed directly upon the front or back face of the sample, such as when translucent or opaque samples are used or when larger samples are being displayed. If preferred, there can also be arranged either in the front or at the back of the book a catalog or other descriptive matter 38 or plain sheets of note paper. price lists, etc.

As pointed out above, the samples 28 are of substantially the same height as the openings 21 in the leaves I9, but of a width relatively greater than the width of said openings. This relative size of samples and openings facilitates the insertion and removal of the samples. As shown in Fig. 7, when inserting a sample 28 in position, the said sample is first turned at an angle about its vertical axis and the rear edge g thereof slipped rearwardly through the opening 21 so that it extends beyond the side edge of said opening as indicated by the broken lines. The forward edge h of the sample is then forced rearwardly until it lies behind the opening 21 and the rear surface of the sample is in engagement with the tabs l2| and 22 as shown in Fig. 8. When in this position,

the sample is moved to the left as indicated by the arrow in Fig. 8 to a point where the edge h of the sample is located behind the opening at one side thereof and the edge g behind the opening at the opposite side. In this way, the two marginal edge portions of the sample engage the back surface of the leaf and the sample is held out by the nanges 22-20 and tabs 3|-32.

Itis to be understood that the form of the invention herewith shown and described is t0 be taken as the preferred embodiment of the same, and that various changes in the shape, size and arrangement of parts may be resorted to without departing from the spirit ofthe invention or the scope of the subioined claims.

I claim:
