One of the most fascinating substances known to man is explored in this investigation that outlines the history, harvesting, rituals, and effects of opium. This bilingual edition features an array of sophisticated paraphernalia in both English and French text, from beds and head rests to varied objects linked to extraction, preparation, and usage such as needles, lamps, scissors, and measuring instruments, unveiling a wide range of rare artifacts from prestigious private collections unpublished until now. The first reference on matters linked to opium consumption, this volume casts a historic light on the mysteries surrounding this enigmatic natural element.
