DAVID T. KOSER, OF RIEGELSVILLE, PENNSYLVANIA.

REVOLVING BOOK-STAN D.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 258,442, dated May 23, 1882.

Application filed February 11, 1682. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, DAVID T. KOSER, of Riegelsville, in the county of Bucks and State of Pennsylvania, have invented a newand useful Improvement in Revolving Book-Stands, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.

The object of the invention is to enable the receptacle in a book-stand to be conveniently adjustable on the shelves; and the invention consists in the particular means by which this is accomplished, as hereinafter described.

Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming a part of this specification, in which similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts in both the figures.

Figure 1 is an elevation, partly in section, of a book-stand of my improved construction, and Fig. 2 is a horizontal section of the same.

Ais a standard, consisting of a tube of suitable size fixed in the base B.

O O are the shelves, supported by flanged collars a, that are attached to standards A by set-screws b.

c is a rod entered in the upper end of tube A, and supported by a set-screw or by collar 6, that is secured adjustably on rod 0 and rests on the upper end of the standard. To the upper end of rod 0 is fixed a plate, 0, for covering the books on the upper shelf, 0, and also intended for holding a large book. The shelves 0 are circular plates of metal, cut out at the center to save weight and material, and formed near their outer edges with slots 70 for securing the filling-segments, as hereinafter described.

D D are the filling-segments. These are of wedge form, constructed preferably of sheet metal and hollow, the front edges being rounded and finished to imitate books. They are also made in two portions-an upper portion, m, that slides over a lower portion, n-so that the segments can be adjusted to the length of the books on the shelves. The segments D are secured to the shelves 0 by screw-bolts 0, that pass through the bottom plates of the segments and the slots k of the shelves, there being nuts on the bolts for clamping the seg ments. This allows adjustment of the fillingsegments to any position in the length of the slots. One or more can readily be placed between a set or series of books on the shelves to fill out the spaces. With this construction each shelf is free to revolve independently, and can readily be adjusted on the standard. The upper shelf, 6, can also be adjusted in height.

The stand is light, durable, and will hold a large number of books conveniently accessible.

This stand has a better appearance than square stands. The shelves are easily adjustable, and the weight of books is evenly distributed on the standard, instead of being all at the top.

Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent-- The combination, with the circular shelves 0, each provided with a circular slot near its periphery, of the bookreceptacle D and the bolts 0, whereby the receptacle may be adjusted on the shelves, as shown, and for the purpose described.
