We’re back!

We have a new patent essay posted, on the history of the bottle cap patent.

In the coming weeks, we will start a new feature of the archive: patent themes. We have essays on different patents that are related in various ways, and we want to highlight those relationships. Stay tuned!

Welcome to PatentHistory.org

Welcome to the launch of the Annotated Patent History Digital Archive. We currently have 10 patent essays available for you to read. We’re still working on tweaking how everything looks, so please be patient as we get up and running.

We will update this News Page when new patent essays or features are added to the site.

Please contact us with any thoughts or questions you may have!
