Matchbook Librariana

One of my smallest collections of librariana consists of library matchbooks. I currently have only five items in the collection. Matchbook collecting is a hobby in itself. To get a sense of the scope of this collecting phenomena check out the results of an image search for "matchbook collections" on Google. Out of that huge assortment of matchbook collections I came across a group of matchbook covers for The Modern Library. Three examples from my collection are shown below. The entirety of my collection can be seen on the Library History Buff website.
