Penman's Arm Rest.

Description: Patent for a new and improved writer's armrest.

The invention consists of a flexible or pliable foundation-piece with an anti-friction or swivel roller or ball projecting from its surface and forming a pivot to support the wrist when writing, a strap or buckle, or other fastening, being used to attach the device to the wrist" (lines 11-22).
