Subject: Copy cradle for fragile books

Copy cradle for fragile books

From: Curt Lang <clang>
Date: Sunday, September 17, 1995
A new version of the copying cradle is now available.
The new design is simpler and easier to handle, and, since
it costs less to manufacture, the price has been reduced.
A smaller model for small books is also available:

Large copying cradle (14" x 18" x 7")   $695.00 (US)
Small copying cradle (10" x 14" x 5")   $630.00 (US)

    *   The book is held open at (about) a ninety degree angle.

    *   Only the page that is to be copied is flattened.

    *   The off-side of the book is held against a side support.

    *   When a book is in the cradle, both the operator's hands are
        free to work the camera and lights.

    *   The copy surface is always held at the same distance from
        the camera lens.
