At last, after 400 years, here is an up-to-date, complete and factual book for today's pipe smoker. Whether you are a new pipe smoker just getting started or an experienced smoker with hundreds of pipes in your collection, this book is for you. In a writing style that is both entertaining and informative, the author - a knowledgeable and respected professional who is well-known among pipemakers and tobacconists throughout the world - shares his wit and wisdom with the reader to give a total view of pipes and pipe smoking. Every chapter contains a rich, full mixture of personal anecdotes and valuable information. Starting off with a history of pipe smoking, this all-encompassing book describes how pipes are made, tells us how to select, smoke and care for our pipes, discusses women pipe smokers and pipe collecting, includes a chapter on famous pipe smokers in fact and fiction and ends with an international glossary of pipe makers, clubs, suppliers and periodicals. Over 250 pages with more than 100 attractive illustrations, this book is destined to become a pipe smoker's classic.

Store Description

Hi, Folks ... Mom said, 'I need to downsize'. Moving to assisted living, what she couldn't take included 8,000-plus books & records. A decade later, my upcountry barn is bursting. Books multiply as others recycle priorities. I now have 30,000 or more books (not yet all online) looking for good homes, and my learning curve has been a roller coaster. I celebrate word-crafters, thought-tumblers, laughter ... the arts of communication at every turn. I preserve, protect, and share. I am also Hedgehog Publishing, 'Words & Pictures by & for Folks with Prickly Backs, Soft Bellies, & Small Brains'.
