' The writing plate I8 is formed with a slot 22 near its upper end through which the manifold 55 2,120,438 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 15 tion shown in Fig. 2. The cover is provided with a cut-out recess l8’ for grasping the manifold sheets on the plate. It should be noticed that angle to the surface of said writing plate and with 20 As sheets of manifold are re moved the total thickness or height of the book lessens. which the manifold sheets engage when drawn The severed or removed sheets on which data 2. A sales book comprising a base plate, pro jections on the base plate at the top and bottom of the base plate for retaining a pack of manifold sheets in place on the base plate, the projections at the bottom being of less height than those has been entered may be stored, if desired, on the base I, as indicated in Fig. 6 by the reference nu meral 24 and retained in place by means of the wires | 5 and I6. These sheets are readily in The upwardly extended ends 6, 1, I2, and I3 serve a further purpose of retaining the manifold leaves in place on the base |. 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. 3.

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 bon and sheets are then clamped in place by 50 the uppermost elastic metal strip 28, as shown 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 Hi for retaining the used manifold sheets in place 155 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|.

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 stored on said base plate below said frame mem ber.
