Holloway Reading Stand and Dictionary Holder

Have you ever been too tired/lazy to hold your book while reading? I wonder if this would accommodate an iPad.

Around 1892, the world of books greeted perhaps the most salient advance since the invention of the printing press: the Holloway Reading Stand and Dictionary Holder. “For invalids and those accustomed to read themselves asleep it is invaluable … The tired man or woman may read while resting.”
Via Paris Review
