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, whichwas then catalogued. From this emerged, in 1924, THE PIPE BOOK, which has rarely been out of print since that date.

Alfred Dunhill was the founder of the world-renowned Alfred Dunhill Limited. His company was the first to introduce a lighter that could be operated with just one hand. His private collection of pipes from around the world was extensively cataloged, and from these archives emerged The Pipe Book. Dunhill passed away in 1959. Ok, this is not a book about the pipes we smoke, in fact there are only a few pages regarding Brier pipes. Most of what is covered are pipes from ancient times in the America's and basically, the tribal areas of some of the most primitive countries. The designs in the book would be good for someone who is going to use them as ideas for a pipe design, but over all, not a basic "hands on" book.

This is a look at various kinds of pipes, some extremely rare and arcane. Dunhill's approach is eclective and diverse. Don't expect a "how to smoke a pipe" kind of book.

This book goes through the history of pipes. Not what I expected, but interrsting nonetheless, and a good read for anyonr interested in the rich history of pipe smoking.

Nice book that covers history of pipes, different shapes and styles, and how-to's. Bought mine used through Amazon, and it was in nearly mint condition.

by TOMAS DeMOSS (Not wife Glenda!!) This is an excellent book that will be of major interest to pipe smokers especially, who enjoy smoking, collecting and reading about pipes and tobacco. The book is EXACTLY what it claims to be. I would have been sorely disappointed if it weren't. Several of the reviewers have denigrated the book because the contents didn't meet their expectations. That is not the responsibility of the book. It's the responsibility of the person who purchased the book to know what the contents are. It always amazes me when people bring home a book and are disappointed with it if it isn't magically filled with the information they were seeking.

a book for all pipe lovers

Ok, this is not a book about the pipes we smoke, in fact there are only a few pages regarding Brier pipes.

The designs in the book would be good for someone who is going to use them as ideas for a pipe design, but over all, not a basic "hands on" book. I give it four stars because even though I was a bit disappointed with the book at first, it is well written and has some interesting and funny stories. There are web sites that have better information for new smokers, or pipe maintenance, tobacco types etc. but not in this book. Get it if you like to read weird stuff, ummm.....like I do.
