what about those cut-away finger holes in bibles and dictionaries? you know, where you can see the letters or chapters along the side...how old are they? or are they a naturally occuring phenomenon that was eventually made into a standard practice?

Hmm... That's a good question. The article seems to be focused on index card tabs, and doesn't mention dictionary/bible indented tabs. They also don't mention folder tabs, which might predate index cards.
