Stapler Invention

In 1868 Charles Gould obtained a British patent for wire stapler. He made of wire material, the wire cut into length, wire tip through the paper and then folded down. This is a direct prototype of modern stapler.

In 1869, Thomas Briggs of Boston, Mass., Invented a machine that could do the job. He founded a "Boston Wire Binding Machine Company" that makes and sells such machines. His machine breaks the wire and makes it bent into a U shape, and then uses it to nail through the pages of the book and then to bend it to properly hold the book. The stapler now also has a staple container.
