GEORGE W. HILL, OF BROOKFIELD, WASHINGTON.

BOOK-MARK.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 785,215, dated March 21, 1905.

Application filed August 3, 1904. Serial No. 219,336-

To a whom it may concern.-

Be it known that I, GEORGE W. HILL, a citizen of the United States, residing at Brookfield, in the county of Wahkiakum, State of Washington, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Book-Marks; and I do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention,

such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.

This invention relates to book-marks, and has for its object to provide a device of this nature which may be used in connection with either bound books or magazines and which may be removably attached thereto.

A further object is to provide a book-mark which will be .simple of construction and which may also be used as a paper-cutter.

Other objects and advantages will be apparent from the following description, and it will be understood that modifications of the specific construction shown -may be made and any suitable materials maybe i1sedwithout departing from the spirit of the invention.

In the drawings forming a portion of this specification, and in which like numerals of reference indicate similar parts in the several views, Figure 1 is a view showing the invention in use and attached to a bound book. Fig. 2 is a sectional view showing it attached to a magazine. Fig. 3 is a perspective view with the invention removed from a book. Fig. 4 shows a modification.

Referring now to the drawings, the present invention comprises a spring-clip 5 of the usual form, which comprises two members 6 and 7, which are hinged together, and which has serrated lips 8 at one end, the two members being held by a spring 9 with their serrated lips normally in engagement with each other.

Secured to the member 7, adjacent to the end opposite to its lip 8, is a pin 10, which extends longitudinally of the member and spaced therefrom and projects at its sharpened end beyond the end of the member which carries the lip 8. The end of the mem ber 7, adjacent to which the pin 10 is secured, which for convenience may be termed the -rearward'end of the member, is bent into the form of a loop, and engaged in this loop is a ring 11, to which is attached a cord 12.

In use in connection with a bound book the spring-clip is engaged with one end of the back of the book, with the pin 10 projecting into the space between the back of the book and the rearward edges of the pages, so that danger of the reader being scratched by the pin is removed. The cord 12 is now inposition to be disposed between the pages of the book to mark a place.

When used in connection with a magazme, the pin 10 is engaged between the pages thereof at one end of the book,with the springclip lying against the back of the book, in

which position the cord 12 may be used as described above.

When used as a paper-cutter, the edges of the spring-clip are grasped between the finger and thumb and the pin 10 is inserted between the leaves to be cut, the pin being drawn along the joined edges to separate them.

In Fig. 4 the cord is shown as an elastic strap 13 and is provided with a tassel 14 at its free end, so that the strap maybe stretched if the pages of the book are longer than the strap to bring the tassel beyond the lower edges thereof. Attached to the strap 13 1s a wing of pasteboard or other suitable material 15 to aid in marking the place, and these cards may be made of diiferent-colored ma terial on difierent marks, so that two or more book-marks may be used in connection with one book without confusion.

What is claimed is A book-mark comprising a spring-clip including two hinged members and a spring arranged to hold the forward ends of the members yieldably in mutual engagement, a ring attached to the rearward end of one of the I In testimony whereof I aflix my signature IIIIIBIIIbGISB a pin1 secured at one end (110 ole 05 in presence of two Witnesses.

t e mem ers a jacent to its rearwar on an extending longitudinally of the member and GEORGE HILL spaced therefrom and projecting beyond the forward end thereof, and zfcord secured at one end to the ring.

Witnesses WM. ANDERSON, FRITZ ANDERSON.
