Technically, this phillumeny hobby started in Japan , In this year, when the first label clubs appeared and labels were was at that point.There really was a hobby be- fore RMS’s 1941 inception. Its history is murky, but it,s there. It has its roots in matchbox label collection in the 1800’s. At that point, that’s all phillumenist had avail- able to collect. That was going to change, though, with Josua Pusey’s invention of the matchbook, in the early 1890s (although it should be noted that there is some contro- versi over whether or not Pusey’s invention was actually the first).
In any event that,s the patent that Diamond Match co purchased,and that’s what started off matchbook production.
