A wide variety of match holders are depicted including pocket, "candle-in-a-box," stand-alone and wall hanging models. Paten drawings, discussions of major manufacturers, and copy from the British magazine "Punch" add dimension as well. All who are concerned with tobacco history, collecting match holders and antiques will find this book a useful reference.
