In the old days, it was harder to keep your papers organised. Among the first methods used were red tape (1780s), eyelets (1850s), paper fasteners made of brass (1860s), and "Individual Preformed Staples" (1870s). The staples of the 1870s operated much as ours today. One of the noted improvements was the long arm stapler which allowed one to reach farther, making it possible to staple booklets together.
