Abstract

A book copying apparatus is disclosed that makes the copying of bound volumes simpler and easier than is presently available on copiers with horizontal platens where books have to be pressed against the platens and thereby subjecting the pages of the books to possible damage. Moreover, if the pressure applied is not uniform and/or the position of the books is disturbed, unusable copies usually result. Productivity is also hampered by this cumbersome method of bound volume copying.
