The writing plate I8 is formed with a slot 22
near its upper end through which the manifold 55
sheets 2| are drawn, as shown in Fig. 6. Located
at the edge of this slot and partially extending
over the slot is the angularly disposed or inclined
plate or strip 23 which is formed as an integral
part of the plate I8. The purpose of this bent or
inclined strip 23 is to cause the manifold leaves
2| to bend on their lines of perforations and reg
ister or engage with the edge 22' of the slot
22 so that all of the manifold or copy sheets will
10 accurately register with each other and prevent
the written matter on the copies from being dis
placed, otherwise they might fail to register. The
leaves are drawn through this opening or slot 22,
when the writing cover I8 is lifted into the posi

a cut-out recess l8’ for grasping the manifold
sheets on the plate. It should be noticed that

Referring now to Fig. 7, which indicates a trans
fer or carbon sheet 25, having two openings 26
135 and 21 near its opposite sides. These openings
are for receiving the thin steel plates 28, as shown
in Fig. 8. The upper end portion 29 of the car
bon sheet 25 above the dotted line 30 is then
at the top, a ?anged writing plate the projections
at the top of the plate also serving as bracket
members to which the ?anges of the writing 30
plate are pivotally connected, the ?anges of the
writing plate being located outside of the pro
jections at the top and bottom of the base plate
to permit the writing plate to engage the same
when in writing position, and whereby the writ- ‘
ing plate will assume an inclined position.

thin steel elastic plate 28. This plate is formed
with the somewhat pointed ends 3| for insertion
in the openings 32 and 33 of the struck up ears
34 of the ?anges l9, as shown. The copy and
45 manifold sheets are built up in the usual way by
alternately arranging the upper copy sheet 35,
The car

in Fig. 6.
Referring to Fig. 4, which indicates a plate 38
having a handle projection 39. This plate is de
signed to be used in place of the wires i5 and

on the base I and also to separate the unused
sheets. The handle portion 39 serves to lift this
plate when used sheets are to be inserted or re
moved from the base and under the supply 2|.

What I claim is:—-‘
By having the side ?anges IQ of the writing
plate !8 overhang or located outside of the ends
6 and I2, it will rest, when closed, on the unused
manifold sheets 2|, as shown, thus making the
thickness of the sales book dependent upon the
supply of sheets in the book.
It will be seen, from Fig. 2, that the manifold
leaves 2| will assume the position 2|’, when the
writing cover |8 is lifted, as shown. As the op
erator draws the leaves 2|, they will be automati
cally bent over the edge 22’ of the slot 22 and will
be positioned, when the line of perforations is
reached. The used leaves will then be separated
and stored on the base plate I, if desired.
4. In a sales book, a base plate provided with
opposed bracket members at one end thereof, a
writing plate provided with downwardly project
ing side ?anges and having said flanges pivotally
connected on said brackets, said writing plate
being provided with a transverse slot at the end
adjacent said brackets, oppositely disposed por
tions of said ?anges being clipped and reversed
to project upwardly above said writing plate, said
portions being provided with slots, ?exible metal
lic strips provided with tapered ends removably
supported on said writing plate with said tapered 60
ends engaged in said slotted portions, said strips
serving as anchoring means for transfer sheets.
5. In combination, in a sales book, a base plate,
a writing plate provided with a transverse slot and
pivotally connected on said base plate, a frame 65
member pivotally connected on said base plate
and located between the base plate and the writ
ing plate, whereby a manifold form pack may be
supported on said frame member below said writ
ing plate, and used forms from said pack may be 70
