Each page holds 20 regular size matchbooks. A few pages have a blank space. Some pages there are a few less because they feature larger matchbooks.

The Hawaiian Gardens book is from a restaurant in San Jose, a place that featured "America's most unique theater restaurant," including "the largest group of trained frogs in the world." It is marked "Feature Matchbook" and "Lion Match Co San Francisco." The Sam's Hofbrau book has cartoon of waiter carrying beer printed across seven matches, which have the heads cut off.
