Über diesen Titel:

Inhaltsangabe:

In 1907, in London, Alfred Dunhill, a young man in his early 30s, opened his first tobacconist's shop. It was an instant success, custom blending individual tobaccos as well as carrying smokers' accoutrements.

Dunhill began to develop a collection of pipes from around the world, which
was then catalogued. From this emerged, in 1924, THE PIPE BOOK, which has rarely been out of print since that date. With black and white photographs as well as line drawings of the vast variety available up to that time, this is a remarkable reference work.

Included are:

                 ¸  Primitive makeshift, mound,
           and earthen pipes

                 ¸  Modern briars, cobs, and
           meerschaums

                 ¸  Water pipes, Far Eastern,
           Indian, and African pipes

                 ¸  Pipe mysteries, histories, and
           rituals

As entertaining as it is informative, THE PIPE BOOK is a unique treasure.

Klappentext: "You do not need to be a smoker of pipes, or of tobacco in any form, to enjoy this--book. If you like to be entertained and instructed by unique information, you will find it a fascinating volume--."                --New York Times
