Improvement in Scrap Books

1873

Samuel Clemens

(Mark Twain)

Probably one of America's favorite authors, Clemens was interested in many things. Improvements to scrapbooks seem like a minor thing, but it allowed scrapbook enthusiasts to add pictures and papers by moistening the dried glue in the book. For scrapbookers - a big deal!

From the time the patent was applied for until the time the patent was issued was, can you believe it, only six weeks. Today, it takes a couple of years at best!
